Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment:
General protective and hygienic measures:
Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.
Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.
Breathing equipment:
In case of brief exposure or low pollution use respiratory filter device. In case of intensive or longer exposure use
respiratory protective device that is independent of circulating air.
Use suitable respiratory protective device in case of insufficient ventilation.
Protection of hands:
SProtective gloves
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.
Penetration time of glove material
The exact break through time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be
observed.
Eye protection: Goggles recommended during refilling.
