SAFETY & HANDLING: RESINS, HARDENERS, SOLVENTS

  • Keep all resins, hardware and solvents out of the reach of children.
  • Always work in well-ventilated areas.
  • Safety goggles, gloves and respirators should always be worn when handling resins, hardeners and solvents. Avoid contact with the skin.
  • Harmful if swallowed – consult a physician immediately.
  • If polyester or epoxy resins or hardeners should splash in your eyes, rinse eyes repeatedly with water and call a physician immediately.
  • Never use or store resins, solvents or hardeners near open flame. Do not smoke when working with these materials.
  • We strongly recommend that an organic vapor respirator be worn when using poly-ester or epoxy resin. However, it is mandatory to wear a respirator when working inside a mold or in confined areas, even though good general ventilation is provided.
  • Dust masks and safety goggles should always be worn when grinding or sanding cured fiberglass laminate.
  • Uncured resin spills should be absorbed with sawdust or other absorbent material. The surface can then be cleaned immediately with hot water and detergent.
  • A clean, neat, well-organized work area is generally a safe work area.
