Exposure controls 

Protective Equipment

 

 

Process Conditions 

Provide eyewash station. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.

Engineering Measures

Provide adequate ventilation.

Respiratory Equipment

Not required.

Hand Protection

The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.

Due to missing tests no recommendation to the glove material can be given for the product/ the preparation/ the chemical mixture.

Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation

Material of 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

Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.
