Safety data sheet Safety data sheet 

Trichloroethylene ≥98 %, for synthesis, stabilized  

Eye/face protection 

Use safety goggle with side protection. 

Skin protection 

  • hand protection 

Wear suitable gloves. Chemical protection gloves are suitable, which are tested according to EN 374. For special purposes, it is recommended to check the resistance to chemicals of the protective gloves mentioned above together with the supplier of these gloves. The times are approximate values from measurements at 22 ° C and permanent contact. Increased temperatures due to heated substances, 

body heat etc. and a reduction of the effective layer thickness by stretching can lead to a consider able reduction of the breakthrough time. If in doubt, contact manufacturer. At an approx. 1.5 times larger / smaller layer thickness, the respective breakthrough time is doubled / halved. The data apply only to the pure substance. When transferred to substance mixtures, they may only be considered as a guide.
