as Sn
· Additional information: The lists that were valid during the compilation were used as basis.
· 8.2 Exposure controls
· Personal protective equipment
· General protective and hygienic measures
Do not eat, drink or smoke while working.
Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and food.
Take off immediately all contaminated clothing
Wash hands during breaks and at the end of the work.
Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.
· Breathing equipment: In case of formation of vapours/dusts:
· Recommended filter device for short term use: Filter E
Protection of hands:
Protective gloves.
The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.
Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the
· Material of gloves
Rubber gloves
The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of
quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. As the product is a preparation of several
substances, the resistance of the glove material can not be calculated in advance and has therefore to
be checked prior to the application.
· Penetration time of glove material
The exact break trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has
to be observed.
· Eye protection:
Goggles, or face shield if necessary
Tightly sealed safety glasses.
· Body protection: suitable clothing
· Boots made from rubber
· Apron: made from rubber
