Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
Contains no substances with occupational exposure limit values.

Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection: Use only in well-ventilated areas.
In case a risk analysis proved the cartridge respirator as acceptable, use type: ABEK-P3 (EN 14387) respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls.
In absence of engineering controls, use self-contained breathing apparatus or full face supplied air respirators.
Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as CEN (EU).

Hand protection: Use gloves when handling substance in open systems.
Inspect gloves prior to use. Train operators for proper use.
If only incidental exposure is expected: (work without direct contact to substance) use gloves tested according EN 16523-1 breakthrough times at least 10 minutes, tested for chemicals indicated in chapter 3 of this SDS. Change gloves frequently.
If direct skin contact is expected: use gloves tested according to EN 16523-1, tested for chemicals indicated in chapter 3 of this SDS. Permeation time must exceed contact time.

Eye protection: Use safety glasses and faceshield tested according to EN166.

Skin and body protection: Wear working clothes covering arms and legs.
The type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace. Use apron or complete chemical suit if exposure is expected.

Hygiene measures: Do not eat, drink or smoke during work.
Wash and dry hands after finished working.

Protective measures: Exposure assessment: Exposure is dependent on the product being handled, the potential for chemical release, and any resulting airborne concentrations or dermal contact. Since product handling and release scenarios vary, and no two workplaces are exactly alike, it is recommended that the potential for exposure be assessed prior to the product’s use or introduction. Exposure assessments should be performed
by an occupational hygienist, industrial hygienist, or other qualified occupational or environmental health professional.
An exposure assessment should be conducted to determine the efficacy of any ventilation and the need for additional respiratory protection.
PPE is always the last resort to avoid exposure. In any case technical and organisational measures have to be explored and used prior to the selection of PPE. The PPE selection is for operators trained to work with chemicals according to good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Operators have to be trained and used to PPE handling.

Environmental exposure controls
General advice: Prevent product from entering drains.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.
