20 kg is available


Handling & Safety:

1 Avoid direct sunlight and heat sources. After it has been tightly sealed, store the product in a dark and cold indoor area at 10°C or below.
2 Use the product in a well-ventilated area by operating local ventilating equipment in order to prevent any inhaling or absorbing through the skin.
3 Wear eye protection, protective gloves and respiratory protection when handling the product.
4 For an electrostatic prevention, have equipment and devices grounded.
5 Since it is flammable, strictly prohibit the use of fire equipment.
6 Since foreign substance causes decomposition, ensure that dust or other foreign substances are not entered during the mixture.
