Macpherson Eclipse Emulsion
All engineering control measures used to control exposure to hazardous substances must be selected, maintained, examined and tested to meet the requirements of the Control Of Substances Hazardous to Health regulations (COSHH). Similarly all personal protective equipment, including respiratory protective equipment, must be selected, issued and maintained to meet the requirements of COSHH.
These requirements include the provision of any necessary information, instruction and training with regard to their use.
precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960's paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead.
Provide adequate ventilation. Where reasonably practicable this should be achieved by the use of local exhaust ventilation and good general extraction. If these are not sufficient to maintain concentrations of solvent vapour below the relevant workplace exposure limits, suitable respiratory protection should be worn. (See personal protection below). Dry sanding, flame cutting and/ or welding of the dry paint film will give rise to dust and/ or hazardous fumes. Wet sanding should be used wherever possible. If exposure cannot be avoided by the provision of local exhaust ventilation, suitable respiratory protective equipment should be worn.
Should not be necessary under normal conditions of use. Suitable respiratory protective equipment should be worn if exposure levels cannot be kept below the workplace exposure limits assigned.
When skin exposure may occur wear gloves. Advice should be sought from glove suppliers on appropriate types. Barrier creams may help to protect exposed areas of the skin but are not substitutes for full physical protection. They should not be applied once exposure has occurred. Always wash your hands before eating smoking or using the toilet.
EYE PROTECTION Eye protection designed against liquid splashes should be worn.
OTHER PROTECTION Should not be necessary under normal conditions of use.
HYGIENE MEASURES Always wash your hands before eating, smoking or using the toilet.
PERSONAL PROTECTION See PPE listed above.
Cotton or cotton/ synthetic overalls or coveralls are normally suitable. Grossly contaminated clothing should be removed and the skin washed with soap and water or a proprietory skin cleaner.
ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURE CONTROLS See section 12.

STABILITY Stable under the recommended storage and handling conditions (see section 7).
MATERIALS TO AVOID Keep away from oxidising agents and strongly alkaline and strongly acidic materials to prevent the possiblility of exothermic reaction.
HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS In a fire, hazardous decomposition products such as smoke, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and oxides of nitrogen may be produced.
11 TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION There is no data available on the product itself.
The product has been assessed following the conventional method in CHIP and is classified for toxicological hazards accordingly. This takes into account, where known, delayed and immediate effects and also chronic effects of components from short term and long term exposure by oral, inhalation and dermal routes of exposure and eye contact, see sections 3 and 15 for the resulting hazard classification.
