· Additional information: The lists that were valid during the compilation were used as basis.
· 8.2 Exposure controls
· Personal protective equipment
· General protective and hygienic measures
Do not eat, drink or smoke while working.
Wash hands during breaks and at the end of the work.
Take off immediately all contaminated clothing
Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.
· Breathing equipment:
Use a breathing protection if high concentrations are present.
Short term filter device:
Filter A/P2.
· Protection of hands:
Protective gloves.
The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the
preparation.
Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the
degradation
· Material of gloves
PVC 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. As the product is a preparation of several
substances, the resistance of the glove material can not be calculated in advance and has therefore
to be checked prior to the application.
