Safety glasses.
Skin protection
full contact:
Glove material:
Nitrile rubber
Glove thickness: 0,11 mm
Break through time: > 480 min
splash contact:
Glove material
Nitrile rubber
Glove thickness: 0,11 mm
Break through time: > 480 min
The protective gloves to be used must comply with the specifications of EC Directive 89/686/EEC and the related standard EN374, for example KCL 741 Dermatril® L (full contact), KCL 741 Dermatril® L (splash contact).
The breakthrough times stated above were determined by KCL in laboratory tests acc. to EN374 with samples of the recommended glove types.
This recommendation applies only to the product stated in the safety data sheet<(>,<)> supplied by us and for the designated use. When dissolving in or mixing with other substances and under conditions deviating from those stated in EN374 please contact the supplier of CE-approved gloves (e.g. KCL GmbH, D-36124 Eichenzell, Internet: www.kcl.de).
Body protection
Protective clothing needs to be selected specifically for the workplace, depending on concentrations and quantities of the hazardous substances handled. The chemical resistance of the protective equipment should be enquired at the respective supplier.
Flame retardant antistatic protective clothing.
Respiratory protection
Not required; except in case of aerosol formation.
