Exposure controls / personal protection

Contains no substances with occupational exposure limit values.

Control measures:
Engineering measures: Avoid splashes. Maintain air concentrations below occupational exposure standards. Extract at emission point.

Personal protective equipment:

Respiratory protection: In case of dust or aerosol formation use respirator with an approved filter.

Hand protection: The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU Directive 89/686/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it. Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves. Also, takes into consideration the specific local conditions under which the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion, and the contact time. Gloves must be inspected prior to use.

Eye protection: Safety glasses. In case of contact through splashing: wear face-shield and protective suit.

Skin and body protection: Protective equipment must be chosen according to the amount and concentration of the dangerous substance at the workplace. Remove and wash contaminated clothing.

Hygiene measures: Emergency equipment immediately accessible, with instructions for use. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location. Use clean, well-maintained personal protective equipment. Store personal protective equipment in a clean location away from the work area. Shower or bathe at the end of working. Regular cleaning of equipment, work area and clothing. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Contaminated work clothing should not be allowed out of the workplace. Wash hands before breaks, immediately after handling the product and at the end of the day.

Protective measures: Protective equipment must be chosen according to current CEN standards and in cooperation with the supplier of protective equipment. Selection of personal protective equipment should be based on an evaluation of the performance characteristics of the protective equipment relative to the task(s) to be performed, conditions present, duration of use, and the hazards and/or potential risks during use.

Stability and reactivity

Stability: Stable under recommended storage conditions.

Conditions to avoid: Risk of dust ignition in air at concentrations greater than 30 g/m3. Decomposes on heating.

Materials to avoid: Alkalis and caustic products. Oxidizing materials.

Decompositon of product: At high temperatures releases flammable vapours. On combustion or on thermal decomposition (pyrolysis) releases toxic vapours (Carbon oxides (CO + CO2)).(Phenol).

Disposal considerations

Product disposal:

Interdiction: Do not let product enter drains.

Advice on cleaning and disposal of packaging:

Advice: Completely empty the packaging prior to decontamination.
Destruction/Disposal: Incinerate bags and flexible containers.
Note: Dispose off in accordance with local regulations.
