remove the heavier-than-air solvent vapors from the lower levels of the
work spaces. The ventilation should be sufficient to keep the solvent
vapor concentration below the TLV. RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: With
adequate ventilation, respiratory equipment should not be needed. If adequate ventilation is not afforded, wear respiratory equipment approved for
organic vapors. SKIN AND EYE PROTECTION: During normal end-product
use, cotton or loop-pile gloves and spectacle-type safety glasses are
