A Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is a document that contains information on the potential health effects of exposure to chemicals, or other potentially dangerous substances, and on safe working procedures when handling chemical products. It is an essential starting point for the development of a complete health and safety program. It contains hazard evaluations on the use, storage, handling and emergency procedures related to that material. The MSDS contains much more information about the material than the label and it is prepared by the supplier. It is intended to tell what the hazards of the product are, how to use the product safely, what to expect if the recommendations are not followed, what to do if accidents occur, how to recognize symptoms of overexposure, and what to do if such incidents occur.

What information is on the MSDS?

In compliance with the American ANSI Z400.1-1998 standard (official title "Standard for Hazardous Industrial Chemicals - Material Safety Data Sheets - Preparation"), European Directive 91/155/EEC on "defining and laying down the detailed arrangements for the system of specific information relating to dangerous preparations in implementation of Article 10 of Directive 88/379/EEC", and following amendments, and International Standard ISO 11014-1 ("Safety data sheet for chemical products -- Part 1: Content and order of sections"), each MSDS must contain sixteen sections:

  1. Product information: product identifier (scientific name, common name), name of the manufacturer and supplier, addresses, emergency phone numbers
  2. Composition / Information on Ingredients
  3. Hazards Identification: data on flammability, reactivity, chronic hazards,...
  4. First-Aid Mesures: description of recommended first-aid mesures in case an incident occurs, for example, in case of ingestion or inhalation of the substance, or in case of contact of the chemical product with eyes or skin
  5. Fire Fighting Mesures: recommended fire fighting apparatus, methods and products, flash point of the substance, fire-fighting class, upper and lower flammable limit (ULF - LFL), dangerous combustion products, recommendations for preventing explosions and fires
  6. Accidental Release Mesures: mesures to be taken in case of the accidental release of the chemical substance or mixture into the environment: soil, rivers, waterways, sources of potable and non potable water, see, etc.
  7. Information on Recommanded Handling and Storage Conditions: recommended procedures for the handling, storage and usage of the chemical substance or mixture
  8. Exposure Controls / Personal Protection: this section often contains the exposure limits per country (classified by form of exposure or overexposure), as well as the personal protection equipment (PPE) recommended or required by law (respiratory protection, skin protection, eye protection, face mask, etc.)
  9. Physical and Chemical Properties: product properties such as vapor pressure, vapor density, specific weight, water solubility, appearance, odor type, boiling point, pH value, viscosity, evaporation rate, freezing point,...
  10. Stability and Reactivity Data: information on the stability of the substance, conditions to avoid, incompatibility with other substances or materials, hazardous decomposition products, etc.
  11. Toxicological Information: information on the acute and chronic toxicity of the chemical substance, possibly data on the known carcinogenic properties, or labo tests
  12. Ecological Information: information on the ecotoxicity of the chemical product, analysis of its components, biodegradability in different environments, etc.
  13. Disposal Considerations: this section often contains references to local legal requirements regarding the disposal of hazardous chemical products
  14. Transport Information: shipping name, hazard class, UN number, package group
  15. Regulatory Information: classification of the substance according to TSCA, SARA, CERCLA,..., S- and R-Phrases
  16. Other Information: this section often presents a list of abbreviations used in the MSDS, references to EU Directives en European or international (ISO) standards, version management of the MSDS, a disclaimer,...

MSDS in  English and other languages be supplied also upon application

Recent Training Sessions

Written by

JUNE – JULY 2015

Unique Polymers have recently completed two technical training days for the WOOD GROUP in ABERDEEN SCOTLAND.

This training was for OFF SHORE technicians and covered aspects of the selection and use of the correct UPS products for applications that are often required in OFF-SHORE / Platform REPAIRS –

The use of the emergency repair bandages as well larger pipe repair systems were also included in the training.

UPS have now been asked to carry out a more detailed technical training programme to TRAIN TRAINERS.

OCTOBER 2014

UPS have undertaken to train technicians and fitters in  FRANCE with a large pump overhaul facility.   

A REAL LIFE repair was carried out during the 3 day session.


 

Pump repair using metal mesh to re profile worn impeller veins using UPS 200 EG to repair and re profile worn areas – UPS 205 GREY / BLUE to offer future wear resistant properties. Increasing the life time of the pump and reducing MTBF (mean time between failure) – UPS CARBIDES STAYING HARDER LONGER

TRAINING FOR DISTRIBUTORS USA

 

 

Our latest USA distributors (based in both Mobile and New Orleans) have recently undertaken hands on training in the correct application techniques and also how to choose the correct and most appropriate product for a particular application.

Our end users rely upon our distributor to be able to offer the professional application of the engineering polymers range and it is vital that the distributor is able to offer knowledgeable support and peace of mind to all their customers.

Our end users rely upon our distributor to be able to offer the professional application of the engineering polymers range and it is vital that the distributor is able to offer knowledgeable support and peace of mind to all their customers.

There are many instances where poorly trained applicators who are not fully conversant with all the up to date application techniques are not giving their customers the best value and and this can lead to reduced expectations on extended life

Make sure your supplier / applicator has been fully

trained and certified to avoid any disappointments  -

Wherever the UPS range of products are being used on a daily basis they will reduce your spend from the maintenance budget by avoiding the need to buy new replacement parts.

In the most cases Unique Polymers can offer alternative solutions at a much-reduced cost thereby saving the plant both money and the frequency of shutdown time.

ALL Unique Polymer Systems distributors have been trained and are backed up by 24 hour technical support and assistance.

When you buy Unique Polymer Systems products you can buy with confidence.

 

remember

 

 

To ensure that all customers who use our products are confident before they buy  that what they are buying is of best quality – we submit all our products to the American Society Of Testing Materials  (ASTM) for testing.pdficon
