SECTION 8: Exposure controls/personal protection
8.1 Control parameters

Occupational exposure limits
No exposure limit value known.
Recommended monitoring  : If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, personal, workplace 
procedures
atmosphere or biological monitoring may be required to determine the effectiveness 
of the ventilation or other control measures and/or the necessity to use respiratory 
protective equipment.
DNELs/DMELs
No DNELs/DMELs available.
PNECs
No PNECs available.
8.2 Exposure controls
Appropriate engineering controls
Provide adequate ventilation.  Where reasonably practicable, this should be achieved by the use of local exhaust 
ventilation and good general extraction.  If these are not sufficient to maintain concentrations of particulates and 
solvent vapors below the OEL, suitable respiratory protection must be worn (see Personal protection).  Provide a 
readily-accessible eyewash facility.  Comply with the health and safety at work laws.
Individual protection measures
Eye/face protection
Wear eye/face protection (EN166).
Hand protection
Wear protective gloves.  Gloves should be replaced regularly and if there is any 
sign of damage to the glove material.  The instructions and information provided by 
the glove manufacturer on use, storage, maintenance and replacement must be 
followed.
Recommended glove material (EN374):
> 8 hours (breakthrough time): nitrile rubber
  Not recommended: PVA gloves
Skin protection
Wear appropriate personal protective clothing to prevent skin contact.
Respiratory protection
If ventilation during spray-application is inadequate, use respirators with 
combination filter AP, gas/dust filter (EN405:2001).  Wear a respirator with type P2 
filter during sanding  (EN149:2001).  Be sure to use an approved/certified respirator 
or equivalent.  Check that mask fits tightly and change filter regularly.
