SECTION 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

Components with workplace control parameters:
Contains no substances with occupational exposure limit values.

Exposure controls
Appropriate engineering controls:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

Personal protective equipment
Eye/face protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields conforming to EN166 Use equipment for eye
protection tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as
NIOSH (US) or EN 166(EU).

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:
Complete suit protecting against chemicals, The type of protective equipment must
