Under normal conditions of use, Specialty Resins present no significant hazards to health, safety or the environment.
Please consult the MSDS/SDS for specific information for each product prior to use.
Some general handling guidelines are given below to minimize any potential risk:
Specialty acrylic resins are often dissolved in flammable organic solvents; care should be taken to eliminate the potential for a fire hazard. Be sure to have adequate work space ventilation to remove solvent vapor.
Electrical static discharge is another potential hazard when flammable solvents are used. To prevent static electricity, containers must be grounded whenever solvent is transferred between containers and/or mixers. Explosion-proof motors and non-sparking tools should be used in areas where resin solutions are prepared or handled.
Nonconductive solids can present a static discharge danger when added to flammable liquids. Be certain to ground both the mixing containers and the product during transfers.
Particles in the eye should be removed by copious flushing with clean water.
Bead resins are small and spherical in shape; they can present a slipping hazard if spilled. Spills should be cleaned up promptly.
Bead resins can be stored for extended periods at room temperature. Keep packages sealed, cool and dry.
