Hand Protection The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation. Due to missing tests no recommendation to the glove material can be given for the product/ the preparation/ the chemical mixture.

Selection of the glove material on consideration of the

penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation.


Material of 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.


Penetration time of glove material The exact break through time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.


Eye Protection Avoid contact with eyes.
Use eye protectors designed to protect against liquid splashes. Before handling, wear safety goggles in accordance with standard EN166.

Other Protection Use personal protective equipment that is clean and has been properly maintained. Store personal protective equipment in a clean place, away from the work area.
Remove and wash contaminated clothing before re-using. Ensure that there is adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.
