Engineering Controls: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
Eye/Face Protection: Face shield and safety glasses. Use equipment for eye protection tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or EN 166(EU).
Skin Protection: Handle with gloves. Gloves must be inspected prior to use. Use proper glove removal technique (without touching gloves outer surface) to avoid skin contact with this product. Dispose of contaminated gloves after use in accordance with applicable laws and good laboratory practices. Wash and dry hands. The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU
Directive 89/686/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it.
Full contact –
Material: Nitrile rubber. Minimum layer thickness: 0,4 mm.
Break through time: 480 min. Material tested: Camatril®.
Splash contact –
Material: Nitrile rubber. Minimum layer thickness: 0,2 mm.

Data source: KCL GmbH, D-36124. Test method: EN374.
If used in solution, or mixed with other substances, and under conditions which differ from EN 374, contact the supplier of the CE approved gloves. This recommendation is advisory only and must be evaluated by an industrial hygienist and safety officer familiar with the specific situation of anticipated use by our customers. It should not be construed as offering an approval for any specific use scenario.
Body Protection: Complete suit protecting against chemicals. Flame retardant anti-static protective clothing. The type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.
Respiratory Protection: Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face particle respirator type OV/AG (US) or type EU (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).
