During processing: Switch on available suction system. 7.2. Storage Requirements for storage rooms and containers: Store products only unopened, in original packing. Special storage conditions: See point 10.2 Only store at temperatures from 5°C to 30°C Store in a dry place. Stability during storage: > 6 months. 8. Exposure controls/personal protection
Ensure good ventilation. This can be achieved by local suction or general air extraction. If this is insufficient to maintain the concentration under the WEL or AG values, suitable breathing protection should be worn. Applies only if maximum permissible exposure values are listed here.

WEL-TWA = Workplace Exposure Limit - Long-term exposure limit (8-hour TWA (= time weighted average) reference period) EH40. AG = "Arbeitsplatzgrenzwert" (workplace limit value, Germany). | WEL-STEL = Workplace Exposure Limit - Short-terme exposure limit (15-minute reference period). | BMGV = Biological monitoring guidance value EH40. BG = "Biologischer Grenzwert" (biological limit value, Germany) | Other information: Sen = Capable of causing occupational asthma. Sk = Can be absorbed through skin. Carc = Capable of causing cancer and/or heritable genetic damage.
Protective nitrile gloves (EN 374)Protective hand cream recommended. 8.3 Eye protection:
Tight fitting protective goggles with side protection (EN 166).
Protective working garments (e.g. safety shoes EN 344, long-sleeved protective working garments)
Additional information on hand protection - No tests have been performed. Selection made for preparations according to the best available knowledge and information on the ingredients. Selection of materials derived from glove manufacturer's indications. Final selection of glove material must be made taking the breakthrough times, permeation ratesand degradation into account. Selection of a suitable glove depends not only on the material but also on other quality characteristicsand varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. In the case of preparations the resistance of glove materials cannot be calculated in advanceso it has to be tested before use. The exact breakthrough time of the glove material can berequested from the protective glove manufacturer and must be observed. 9. Physical and chemical properties
