7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
Read the Suppliers' technical data Sheet carefully before commissioning or using the product.
Conditions for safe storage
Store unopened package at ambient temperature in a well ventilated place away from heat.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Exposure Standards
Engineering controls
No components above the 0.1% threshold have specific workplace control parameters assigned to our knowledge.
Local mechanical ventilation not required as supplied, but this is also dependent on other mobile phases and analytes used. Always use a fume cupboard if handling as the dry power or where the liquid component may become airborne.
Personal protective equipment
Eye and face protection
Safety glasses with side-shields conforming to EN 166.
Skin protection
Suitable impervious gloves e.g. Nitrile or Neoprene rubber. The selected protective gloves have to conform to EN 374.
Body protection
Avoid contact of contents with skin, eyes, and clothing. Wash hand before breaks and immediately after handling the product.
Respiratory protection
If required to control exposure, use only suitable respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).
