Exposure controls / personal protection

EXPOSURE LIMITS: STEL (EH40): 1mg/m3
ENGINEERING CONTROLS: Use local exhaust ventilation to keep airborne concentrations below exposure limits.
PERSONAL PROTECTION EQUIPMENT:
Respiratory: Wear a CEN Class P respirator approved for protection against inorganic dusts, when adequate ventilation is not available.
Eyes: Safety glasses or goggles.
Gloves: Nitrile ( typical permeation breakthrough time >480 minutes)
These glove recommendations should not be used as the absolute basis for glove selection. Actual in-use conditions may vary glove performance from the controlled conditions of laboratory tests. Factors such as concentration and temperature, glove thickness and glove reuse, may affect performance. Other glove requirements, such as length, dexterity, cut, abrasion, puncture and snag resistance, or glove grip need to be considered in making your final selection.
Others: Quick-drench eyewash and safety shower.

Stability and reactivity

CONDITIONS TO AVOID: None.
STABILITY: Stable under normal storage and temperature conditions.
POLYMERISATION: Will not occur
HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: None.
INCOMPATIBLE MATERIALS: Acids, aluminium, zinc.

Disposal considerations

WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD: Dispose of waste according to local regulations.
