Classification of reaction products to eliminate potential GHS hazards is an extremely difficult concept for anyone but a chemist to truly grasp. We fully understand the concept of reaction products and know how to identify them.

Below is a simple blend that could end up with a hazmat, very corrosive liquid. An example of an incorrect SDS for this product is here in the table below:

This is the actual reaction after the mixing is complete. Both the Alkaline substance (NaOH) and the Acidic Substance (HCl) react to form NaCL and water. Well, the reaction produces heat as well but that is unnecessary for the label and SDS. It is extremely important for the person mixing these as this could be very dangerous. An example of a correct formula for this product that would lead to a 100% non hazardous non-regulated SDS, is shown in the table below:

We have a complete understanding of the neutralization equivalents used in industry today and can help you understand them as well.

Don’t allow a solely software based company to spit out an SDS because you will end up with an improperly classified hazardous product when in fact your finished product is non-regulated.

 

Classification of VOC exemptions are as follows:

  • Recommendations for dilutions to present product as marketable and as user-friendly as possible in industrial environment.
  • Recommendation of proper chemical hygiene in industrial environment including fire safety & incompatibilities.
  • Provide lab testing of basic physical and chemical properties in order to properly classify.
  • Extensive knowledge of limited quantity exemptions for shipping via DOT, IATA, IMDG, & ADR.
