Guidelines

 

  • Always read the health and safety advice on our labels and data sheets.
  • Avoid solvents on your skin. Solvent wiping will degrease your skin and can lead to dermatitis.
  • In case of fire, use a CO2 extinguisher or sand. Water will spread the solvent and the fire.
  • Always work in ventilated areas. Allow plenty of airflow when painting as the build up of solvent can cause sleepiness and nausea. Wear a suitable respirator if in doubt.
  • Wet sand antifouling because the dust is toxic.
  • Do not eat or smoke when handling paint.
  • Handle cans with care and keep sealed. Dispose of waste paint at a recycle centre.
