                                        : Half mask with a particle filter P2 (EN 143).

Hand protection            : Suitable material : Nitrile rubber

Break through time       : > 480 min

                                         Take note of the information given by the producer concerning permeability and break through times, and of special workplace

                                         conditions (mechanical strain, duration of contact).

Eye protection               : Safety glasses with side-shields

Skin and body protection : Choose body protection according to the amount and concentration of the dangerous substance at the work place.

                                               No special protective equipment required.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Spilled material can be collected (shovel spills) and may be

recovered by recrystallisation in ethyl acetate.

Carefully shovel spills (avoid generating dust) into

appropriate containers for disposal. To remove residue, wet

with water, absorb with sand or

vermiculite and place in

compatible container for disposal. Keep spill out of sewers and open bodies of water.  Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None known.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incinerate at a suitable facility with waste gas treatment to remove oxides of nitrogen. (A661)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will not enter the public domain.
