Storage & Handling

Storage & Handling Information
  • Store the product in sealed containers, in a sheltered, dry place, away from sources of heat or ignition. Because the product is hygroscopic, we recommend storing product on cement floors at low humidity.
  • For bulk storage of product use tanks made of AISI 304 or 316 stainless steel or carbon steel coated with vinyl ester resin. These tanks should have internal coils made of 304 or 316 stainless steel installed at the bottom and provided with hot water at temperatures of 70 to 80ºC. Steam is not recommended as product may darken at high heat. In addition, a recirculation system is recommended to homogenize the product before use.
  • For product packaged in drums, we recommend heating in ovens, water baths or with thermal tapes at temperatures of 60°C to 80°C for only as long as it takes to melt and homogenize the products before use.
  • Handle chemical products in well-ventilated areas, with ready access to emergency showers and eyewash stations.
  • Use proper personal protective equipment (PPE) when handling the products, such as PVC gloves, safety goggles, and coat.
