Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
- General protective and hygienic measures:
The usual precautionary measures are to be adhered to when handling chemicals.
Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.
Immediately remove all soiled and contaminated clothing
Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.
Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.

- Respiratory protection:
In case of brief exposure or low pollution use respiratory filter device. In case of intensive or longer exposure
use self-contained respiratory protective device.

- Protection of hands: Protective 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 trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be
observed.

- Eye protection: Tightly sealed goggles

- Body protection: Use protective suit.
