VIII. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Exposure Guidelines:

   Exposure Limits  Exposure Limits  Exposure Limits 
 Component  ACGIH  NIOSH  OSHA-PELs
 Proprietary Treatment Compound  ND  ND  ND
 Polyurethane Foam  NA  NA   NA 

Engineering Controls:

A continuous supply of fresh air to the workplace together with removal of processing fumes through exhaust systems is recommended. Processing fume condensate may be fire hazard and toxic; remove periodically from exhaust hoods, duct work, and other surfaces using appropriate personal protection. Ventillation must be adequate to maintain the ambient workplace atmosphere below the exposure limit(s) outlined in the MSDS.

Operations involving cutting should be reviewed to ensure that dust levels are kept below recommended levels.

 

Respiratory Protection:

Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Always use a NIOSH or EN approved respirator when necessary.

 

Eye/Face Protection:

Wear appropiate safety glasses with side shields or chemical goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in 29CFR 1910.133 or European Standard EN166.

 

Skin Protection:

Avoid prolonged or repeated conact with skin.
