Control parameters:
Ingredient Material name TEEL-1 TEEL-2 TEEL-3
α,α-dimethylphenethyl acetate Not Available Not Available Not Available Not Available

Ingredient Original IDLH Revised IDLH
α,α-dimethylphenethyl acetate Not Available Not Available
Exposure controls:
Appropriate engineering controls: Use in a well-ventilated area.
Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment:
Eye / face protection Safety glasses with side-shields conforming to EN166.
Skin protection Handle with gloves.
Choose body protection according to the amount and concentration of the dangerous substance at the work place.
Respiratory protection Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face respirator with multipurpose combination (US) or type ABEK (EN 14387) respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).
