What safety precautions should I use when working with epoxy?

EcoPoxy resins and hardeners can be used in a well-ventilated indoor workspace without respiratory protection (excluding spray applications). Uncured epoxy resins are chemicals, and clothing that protects the whole body from splashes should be worn when using them. Personal protective equipment such as gloves and safety glasses must be worn to avoid the risk of skin and eye exposure. Wash hands with soap and water before eating or drinking.

Eye exposure can result in permanent damage. In the event of contact with eyes, irrigate with plenty of gently flowing lukewarm water for 15 minutes and seek immediate medical attention.

Refer to the appropriate Safety Data Sheet, available on, for a full list of safety hazards and precautions.
