Respiration : If the Breathing Zone sampling results exceed the established occupational exposure limit (OEL) or the minimum concentration defined by the occupational hazard band, use respiratory protection with sufficient protection factor to ensure exposure is below the exposure limit. Unless the exposure results indicate the requirement for an air supplied device, use HEPA filters for powders or aerosols and cartridge or canister filters for vapors and gases.
Filter : ABEK-P3 (EN141)
Eye : Yes, by face mask
Hand : Double gloves (chemical resistant), worn with long-sleeved or taped

Container Disposal: For disposal local regulation is binding. Empty but uncleaned containers for hazardous substances have to be regarded as
hazardous until they have been cleaned.
