Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with workplace control parameters

7647-01-0: hydrogen chloride       

7664-41-7: ammonia       

12125-02-9: ammonium chloride

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection:

Breathing protection if dusts are formed. Particle filter with low efficiency for solid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P1or FFP1)

Hand protection:

Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)

Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended:  Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):

nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness

polyvinylchloride (PVC) - 0.7 mm coating thickness

Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.

Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Eye protection:

Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

General safety and hygiene measures:

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
