Skin protection
For any handling steps where the substance is in particulate form or in a suspension with pure water where the substance is not solubilized, the gloves must be comprised of material that successfully passes ASTM F-1671. For any handling steps where the substance is part of a carrier liquid, other than the aqueous suspension noted in the previous paragraph, gloves must be comprised of material that successfully passes ASTM F-739 (continuous liquid contact method). Gloves must be changed before they show degradation and before the designated breakthrough time for the carrier liquid (as determined by the ASTM F-739 testing or by the manufacturer). Handle with gloves. Gloves must be inspected prior to use. Use proper glove removal technique (without touching glove's outer surface) to avoid skin contact with this product. Dispose of contaminated gloves after use in accordance with applicable laws and good laboratory practices. Wash and dry hands.
Body Protection
Impervious clothing, The type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.
Respiratory protection
The EPA mandates the use of full face respirators with minimum N100 grade cartridges if there is any risk of exposure to the dust. For nuisance exposures use type P95 (US) or type P1 (EU EN 143) particle respirator. For higher level protection use type OV/AG/P99 (US) or type ABEK-P2 (EU EN 143) respirator cartridges. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).
Control of environmental exposure
Do not let product enter drains.

Sulfur Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of Sulfur's shells is 2, 8, 6 and its electron configuration is [Ne] 3s2 3p4. In its elemental form, sulfur has a light yellow appearance. The sulfur atom has a covalent radius of 105 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 180 pm. In nature, sulfur can be found in hot springs, meteorites, volcanoes, and as galena, gypsum, and epsom salts. Sulfur has been known since ancient times but was not accepted as an element until 1777, when Antoine Lavoisier helped to convince the scientific community that it was an element and not a compound.
