Use skin protection cream for preventive skin protection.
Breathing equipment: Not required.
Protection of hands:
Protective gloves
The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the
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
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 trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and
has to be observed.
Eye protection: Tightly sealed safety glasses
Body protection: Acid resistant protective clothing
