Instructions for use
Suitable for applications handling liquid nitrogen and other cryogenic gases to protect from cold contact and prevent burns from liquid gas leakage. Wear suitable protective clothing at low temperatures. Protect your eyes with a face shield or goggles equipped with lateral protection. Always wear gloves made by non-absorbent materials to handle objects that are or have been in contact with liquid. The gloves should be comfortable and possibly be removed and discarded quickly in case of accidental contact with the liquid. During the transfer operation the use of apron and overshoes is recommended.
FIRST AID IN CASE OF ACCIDENT TO EXPOSURE TO COLD
Wash affected areas with plenty of warm water and avoid rubbing and removing clothing, do not expose area to direct heat. If there are symptoms of frostbite, injury or extensive damage to the eyes get immediate medical assistance. Until medical assistance arrives protect the affected areas with soft, dry, clean & loosely wrapped material, avoid restricting circulation, keep the patient warm and still, and no alcoholic beverages.
Exposure of the skin to very cold temperatures can cause damage similar to burns, with prolonged exposure frostbite can occur. Inhalation of vapors at low temperature can damage the lungs, cryogenic liquids or vapors can cause eye damage. In contact with cold surfaces (pipes or non-insulated vessels), the skin may adhere very firmly due to the freezing of moisture and tear when you try to remove. Excessive concentrations of oxygen increase the danger of fire and excessive concentrations of other gases, reduces the percentage of oxygen in the environment, creating the danger of asphyxiation.
Store the apron in their original packaging protected from heat, light and humidity.
