7. Handling And Storage
Keep in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area.
Protect against physical damage. Isolate from incompatible substances.
Containers of this material may be hazardous when empty since they retain
product residues (dust, solids); observe all warnings and precautions listed
for the product.
8. Exposure Controls / Personal Protection
Airborne Exposure Limits:
Ventilation System: A system of local and/or general exhaust is
recommended to keep employee exposures as low as possible. Local
exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the
emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the
general work area. Please refer to the ACGIH document, Industrial
Ventilation, A Manual of Recommended Practices, most recent edition, for
Personal Respirators: For conditions of use where exposure to the dust or
mist is apparent, a half-face dust/mist respirator may be worn. For
emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a
full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.
WARNING: Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in
Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles. Maintain eye wash fountain
and quick-drench facilities in work area.
