Handling and storage

General Precautions
Use local exhaust ventilation if there is risk of inhalation. Carry out a risk assessment of local circumstances to help determine appropriate controls for safe handling, storage and disposal of this material.

Precautions for Safe Handling
Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin. Avoid inhaling vapour and/or mists. Eye protection according to CEN166:1996 may be warranted if environment is excessively dusty.
