Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
· Components with critical values that require monitoring at the workplace:
Observe all workplace limits for dust.

Exposure controls
· Personal protective equipment
· General protective and hygienic measures
Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and food.
Do not breathe dust.
Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.
Wash hands during breaks and at the end of the work.
· Breathing equipment:
Use breathing protection in case of dust formation.
If all workplace limits are observed and good ventilation is ensured, no special precautions necessary.
· Protection of hands:
Protective gloves
To avoid skin problems reduce the wearing of gloves to the required minimum.
Check the permeability prior to each renewed use of the glove.
The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.
Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation.
· Material of gloves
Synthetic gloves
The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.
· Penetration time of glove material
The exact break through time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.
· Eye protection: Safety glasses
· Body protection: Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure.
· Limitation and supervision of exposure into the environment
Do not allow to enter drainage system, surface or ground water.

Stability and reactivity

Conditions to be avoided:
Heat
Take precautionary measures against static discharge.
Sources of ignition
· Possibility of hazardous reactions Risk of dust explosion.
· Incompatible materials: Strong oxidizing agents
· Hazardous decomposition products: Carbon monoxide (CO) and Carbon dioxide (CO₂), Soot
