The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.
Due to missing tests no recommendation to the glove material can be given for the product/ the preparation/ the chemical        mixture.
Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation
· Material of gloves
The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from    manufacturer to manufacturer. As the product is a preparation of several substances, the resistance of the glove material can’t be  calculated in advance and has therefore to be checked prior to the application.
· Penetration time of glove material
The exact breakthrough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.
· Eye protection: Goggles recommended during refilling.
