Protective Equip. / Clothing

Personal Protective Equipment: Eye protection: goggles, safety glasses with side-shields. Skin and body protection: chemical resistant apron, long sleeved clothing, gloves. Respiratory protection: vapor respirator, . be sure to use an approved/certified respirator or equivalent. /Isopropyl Alcohol, Reagent, ACS/
The following materials are acceptable: neoprene, PVC, paracril/PVC, chlorinated polyethylene, butyl rubber, natural rubber, nitrile, vitron. Unacceptable: PVA. Conditionally acceptable: polyurethane. Note: This ... is ... a guide only. The user is advised to contact the protective clothing manufacturer regarding the specific applicability & limitations of a material under proposed conditions of use.
Personnel protection: Wear appropriate chemical protective gloves, boots and goggles.
Breakthrough times greater than one hour reported by (normally) two or more testers for neoprene and nitrile rubber. Some data (usually from immersion tests) suggesting breakthrough times greater than one hour are not likely for natural rubber. No data for butyl rubber, neoprene/styrene-butadiene rubber, nitrile rubber/polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene, polyvrethane, polyvinyl alcohol, and viton. Some data suggesting breakthrough times of approximated an hour or more for polyvinyl chloride.
Wear appropriate personal protective clothing to prevent skin contact.
Wear appropriate eye protection to prevent eye contact.
