Exposure controls / personal protection

This substance is handled under Strictly Controlled Conditions as specified in REACH regulation Article 18(4). Written confirmation of application of Strictly Controlled Conditions has been received from every affected Distributor and Downstream Processor/User of the Registrant’s intermediate.

EXPOSURE LIMITS :

Components with limit values that require monitoring at the workplace:

Aluminium Alkyls :
NOISH (America) (8hr TWA) 2mg/m3
SAIOH (South Africa) Occupational Exposure Limit – recommended limit (8hr TWA) 2mg/m3
FIOSH (Germany) BAT 200ppm

Exposure Controls

Risk management measures : Occupational exposure controls-Technical measures : Use only with adequate ventilation. Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep worker exposure to airborne contaminants below any recommended or statutory limits. The engineering controls also need to keep gas, vapour or dust concentrations below any lower explosive limits.

Personal protection measures :

- Inhalation : Approved filter (A/p2) Respirator recommended.
- Skin Contact : PVC/rubber gloves (impervious) and impervious clothing
- Eye Contact : Full-face shield preferred over goggles

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Product :

Methods of disposal: Examine possibilities for re-utilisation. Product residues and un-cleaned empty containers should be packaged, sealed, labelled, and disposed of or recycled according to relevant national and local regulations. Where large quantities are concerned, consult the supplier. When un-cleaned empty containers are passed on, the recipient must be warned of any possible hazard that may be caused by residues. For disposal within the EC, the appropriate code according to the European Waste List (EWL) should be used. It is among the tasks of the polluter to assign the waste to waste codes specific to industrial sectors and processes according to the European Waste List (EWL).

Recommendation: Dilute with petroleum or diesel oil to a maximum of 10% solution and burn in a permitted hazardous waste incinerator.

Packaging :

Methods of disposal : The generation of waste should be avoided or minimised wherever possible. Waste packaging should be recycled. Incineration or landfill should only be considered when recycling is not feasible.

Special Precautions: This material and its container must be disposed of in a safe way. Care should be taken when handling emptied containers that have not been cleaned or rinsed out. Empty containers or liners may retain some product residues. Vapour from product residues may create a highly flammable or explosive atmosphere inside the container. Do not cut, weld or grind used containers unless they have been cleaned thoroughly internally. Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers.

Recommendation: Rinse and dry with inert hydrocarbon. Dispose of washing solution the same way as product. Empty containers may contain some remaining product. Hazard warning labels are a guide to the safe handling of empty packaging and should not be removed. Empty containers represent a fire hazard as they may contain flammable product residues and vapour. Never weld, solder or braze empty containers.

Materials contaminated with product should be treated as highly flammable.
