Exposure Limit Values

Remarks: none established

Exposure controls

- Facilities and equipment easily cleanable.

- Avoid splashes.

- Effective exhaust ventilation system

Occupational exposure controls

Respiratory protection

- If mist is formed: Respirator with a particle filter (EN 143)

- Use a respirator with an approved filter if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary.

Hand protection

- Where there is a risk of contact with hands, use appropriate gloves. 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 take 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.

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

Eye protection

- Safety glasses with side-shields

Skin and body protection

- Boots

- impervious clothing

- Choose body protection according to the amount and concentration of the dangerous substance at the work place.

- Remove and wash contaminated clothing.

Hygiene measures
