Materials safety data sheets

Some materials pose special risks due to their chemical or physical nature, especially if handled in an inappropriate way. These risks can include hazards to the user or hazards to the environment, if materials are disposed incorrectly. Information regarding these risks, together with safety precautions on how to minimise the risks and information on what to do in case of an accident is often compiled in material safety data sheets (MSDS).

As part of our commitment to utmost transparency, we have made these MSDS forms for such materials available on-line. This allows all potential customers to:

  • check for potential hazards before purchase

  • implement the necessary safety precaution(s) before receipt of materials

  • inform the relevant staff members of the potential hazards.

By making the MSDS readily available we are contributing to the development and maintenance of a safe laboratory environment for our customers.
