Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures

- Provide local exhaust or general room ventilation to minimize exposure to vapors.

Personal protective equipment:

Respiratory protection :

- In case of dusts/vapours/aerosols being formed or if the limit values like TLV are exceeded:

 Wear a respirator conforming to EN 140 with Type A filter or better.

Hand protection :

- Glove material butyl rubber; material thickness 0.5 mm; break through time ≥ 480 min.

 The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the European norm standard EN 374.

 Gloves should be discarded and replaced if there is any indication of degradation or chemical


Eye protection :

- Eye protection such as chemical splash goggles and/or face shield must be worn when possibility exists  

 for eye contact due to splashing or spraying liquid, airborne particles, or vapor.

 The selected goggles or glasses must satisfy the European norm standard EN 166.

- The equipment must be cleaned thoroughly after each use.

Skin and body protection :
