Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Storage and Handling Precautions Provide exhaust ventilation system in case of open handling. Keep container tightly closed in a dry, cool a nd well-ventilated place. Avoid formation of dust.
For Industrial Hygiene Measures see SDS Section 8, Exposure controls / Personal protection

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Conditions of storage Protect against humidity
Preventive Precautions (fire/explosion) Observe the usual precautionary measures required for chemicals with dust explosive properties (Obs erve national regulations).

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
Internal exposure limit 0.25 mg/m3 Reprotox statement 2: Low probability pregnancy and/or developmental risks

Exposure controls
Industrial Hygiene The personal protective measure may be adapted appropriately when working in closed systems or under laboratory condit ions.
Regular cleaning of equipment, work area and clothing.
Open handling at operator intervention points with local exhaust ventilation (e.g. downflow booths).
Double wardrobe must be available.
Internal working procedures available to personnel covering personal hygiene, standard cleaning, waste disposal and mainten ance.
Personnel instructed and trained, regular refresher training established.

Open Handling Respiration : Disposable fine dust protection mask (EN149) or reusable halfmask (EN140)
Filter : P3 (EN143)
Eye : Safety glasses (EN166)
Hand : Normal length chemical-mechanical-resistant gloves (EN374/EN388)
Glove Material : Nitrile
Breakthrough time: > 480 min
Thickness: 0.2 mm
Additional protection : working clothes (EN 340)

These values are derived from experiments, literature and information from the glove manufacturer.
They can also be derived from similar materials. In daily work please be aware that the using time depends on several factors and can be shorter than the oficially tested permeation time.
