Hygiene Measures : Do not inhale vapour, aerosols, mist. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.
Ensure there is good room ventilation. The workplace related airborne concentrations have to be kept below of the
indicated exposure limits. If the limits at the workplace are exceeded and/or larger amounts are released (leakage,
spilling, etc.) the indicated respiratory protection should be used. No eating, drinking, smoking or snuffing tobacco
at work. Wash face and/or hands before break and end of work. Preventative skin protection recommended. Avoid
