Exposure controls:

Appropriate engineering controls:       Use in a well-ventilated area.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment:

Eye / face protection       Safety glasses with side-shields conforming to EN166.

Skin protection       Handle with gloves.

Choose body protection according to the amount and concentration of the dangerous substance at the work place.

Respiratory protection       Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face respirator with multipurpose combination (US) or type ABEK (EN 14387) respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).

General hygiene

considerations       Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period. Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed. Immediately remove all soiled and contaminated clothing.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability       Material is stable under normal conditions.

Conditions to avoid       Incompatible materials.

Incompatible materials       Strong oxidizing agents, Strong acids, Strong bases.

Hazardous decomposition products       Carbon oxides.

Possibility of hazardous reactions       No dangerous reactions known.

Disposal considerations

Disposal instructions       Dispose of contents/container in accordance with local/regional/national/international regulations.

Contaminated packaging       Since emptied containers may retain product residue, follow label warnings even after container is emptied.
