Respiratory protection
If the substance may be released (accidentally), wear respiratory protection. Observe the limitations on wearing time! Respiratory protective device: Gas filter A, brown colour, or ABEK/P3. For information regarding the preconditions and maximum concentrations for use see the "Regeln für den Einsatz von Atemschutzgeräten" (BGR 190) [Use of respiratory protective devices]. Respiratory protection: self-contained breathing apparatus. To be used at concentrations above the usage limit for filter appliances, in case of oxygen content below 17 vol% or under unclear conditions.

Skin protection
Preventative skin protection necessary. Clean skin before breaks and at the end of the shift with water and soap. Apply fatty skin-care products after skin cleaning.

Hand protection
Use gloves. The glove material shall be sufficiently resistant and impermeable for the substance handled. Prior to use, check for tightness.
Pre-clean gloves prior to taking them off, then store well-ventilated. Textile or leather gloves are totally unsuitable. Suitable glove materials: (breakthrough time >= 8 hours): Fluorine rubber – FKM (0.4 mm).
