Exposure controls / personal protection

Control Parameters
Occupational Exposure Limits
Chemical name type Exposure Limit Values Source
9-Octadecenoic acid (Z)-, zinc salt, basic - Inhalable fraction. MAK 2 mg/m3 Germany
9-Octadecenoic acid (Z)-, zinc salt, basic - Respirable fraction. MAK 0,1 mg/m3 Germany

Exposure controls
Appropriate engineering controls:
No special requirements under ordinary conditions of use and with adequate ventilation.
Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment General information: Please follow the recommended personal protective equipment (PPE) guidelines below and refer to the appropriate EN standard where applicable. Use personal protective equipment as required.
Eye/face protection: If contact is likely, safety glasses with side shields are recommended. Eye protection should meet the standards set out in EN 166

Skin protection
Hand Protection:
Suitable gloves can be recommended by the glove supplier.

General: Because specific work environments and material handling practices vary, safety procedures should be specific for each intended application. The correct choice of protective gloves depends upon the chemicals being handled, and the conditions of work and use. Most gloves provide
protection for only a limited time before they must be discarded and replaced (even the best chemically resistant gloves will break down after
repeated chemical exposures). Gloves should be chosen in consultation with the supplier / manufacturer and taking account of a full assessment of
the working conditions. For typical use and handling of chemical substances, gloves should meet the standards set out in EN 374. For
applications involving mechanical risks with potential for abrasion or puncture, the standards set out in EN 388 should be considered. For tasks
involving thermal hazards, the standards set out in EN 407 should be considered.

Break-through time:
Breakthrough time data are generated by glove manufacturers under laboratory test conditions and represent how long a glove can be expected
to provide effective permeation resistance. It is important when following breakthrough time recommendations that actual workplace conditions are
taken into account. Always consult with your glove supplier for up-to-date technical information on breakthrough times for the recommended glove
For continuous contact, we suggest gloves with a minimum breakthrough time of 240 minutes, or > 480 minutes if suitable gloves can be obtained. If
suitable gloves are not available to offer that level of protection, gloves with shorter breakthrough times may be acceptable as long as appropriate glove maintenance and replacement regimes are determined and adhered to.
For short-term, transient exposures and splash protection, gloves with shorter breakthrough times may commonly be used. Therefore, appropriate
maintenance and replacement regimes must be determined and rigorously followed.

Glove thickness:
For general applications, we recommend gloves with a thickness typically greater than 0.35 mm.
It is important to note that glove thickness is not the only predictor of glove resistance to a specific chemical, as the permeation efficiency of the glove will be dependent on the exact composition of the glove material.
Therefore, glove selection should also be based on consideration of the task requirements and knowledge of breakthrough times.
Glove thickness may also vary depending on the glove manufacturer, the glove type and the glove model. Therefore, the manufacturers’ technical
data should always be taken into account to ensure selection of the most appropriate glove for the task.

Note: Depending on the activity being conducted, gloves of varying thickness may be required for specific tasks. For example: Thinner gloves
(down to 0.1 mm or less) may be required where a high degree of manual dexterity is needed. However, these gloves are only likely to give short
duration protection and would normally be just for single use applications, before being disposed of. Thicker gloves (up to 3 mm or more) may be
required where there is a mechanical (as well as a chemical) risk i.e. where there is abrasion or puncture potential.
Other: Gloves, coveralls, apron, boots as necessary to minimize contact. Do not wear rings, watches or similar apparel that could entrap the material.

Respiratory Protection:
Consult with an industrial hygienist to determine the appropriate respiratory protection for your specific use of this material. A respiratory
protection program compliant with all applicable regulations must be followed whenever workplace conditions require the use of a respirator.
Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) is not normally required where there is adequate natural or local exhaust ventilation to control exposure.
In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.
The correct choice of respiratory protection depends upon the chemicals being handled, the conditions of work and use, and the condition of the
respiratory equipment.
Safety procedures should be developed for each intended application.
Respiratory protection equipment should therefore be chosen in consultation with the supplier/manufacturer and with a full assessment of
the working conditions.
Please refer to the relevant EN standards for the RPE selected.

Hygiene measures:
Always observe good personal hygiene measures, such as washing after handling the material and before eating, drinking, and/or smoking. Routinely
wash work clothing to remove contaminants. Discard contaminated footwear that cannot be cleaned.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical Stability:
Material is stable under normal conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions:
Will not occur.

Conditions to avoid:
Do not expose to excessive heat, ignition sources, or oxidizing materials.

Incompatible Materials:
None known, avoid contact with reactive chemicals.

Hazardous Decomposition Products:
Thermal decomposition or combustion may generate smoke, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and other products of incomplete combustion.
Thermal decompositon may generate zinc oxides and other zinc containing compounds.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Disposal methods:
Treatment, storage, transportation, and disposal must be in accordance with applicable Federal, State/Provincial, and Local regulations.
Since emptied containers retain product residue, follow label warnings even after container is emptied.

Contaminated Packaging: Container packaging may exhibit hazards.
