Organic peroxides can be thermally unstable compounds which can decompose at relatively low temperatures. However, they can be handled and stored safely if proper precautions and procedures are followed.
As the recognized leader in organic peroxides safety, we are committed to sharing our expertise and providing unique safety services for our customers and distributors.
Our safety experts have accumulated an immense amount of knowledge on the safe handling, storage and processing of organic peroxides and metalorganics, which we share with our customers as an integral part of the services we provide.
We also provide support by providing:
Metal alkyls and metalorganic substances can be highly reactive compounds. Many concentrated metal alkyls and aluminoxanes or their solutions are pyrophoric, meaning they ignite spontaneously upon exposure with air. In addition, metal alkyls and aluminoxanes can react violently with water.
However, metalorganics can be handled safely with the proper knowledge of handling techniques, carefully designed facilities and thorough training of personnel using written procedures. Properly trained personnel can give proper attention to these compounds in order to handle them confidently and safely.
Unique safety research laboratory
The safe handling and storage of organic peroxides and metal alkyls is only possible if the specific properties for these products are known. For this reason, we have a world-class research and development facility in Deventer, the Netherlands, where we perform extensive safety studies. Through vigorous testing and an in-depth knowledge of the products we manufacture, we can develop safer products and innovative packaging.
Expancel® dry microspheres is a free-flowing, lightweight powder. As with any such powders it is important to avoid dusting. This can be done with knowledge, safe routines and the right tools.
During our 40 years on the market we have accumulated a vast experience on how to handle our products. We have developed tools that make it easy; and we can provide our customers with the knowledge to handle Expancel® microspheres safely and efficiently. Our safety portfolio contains:
Monochloroacetic Acid (MCA)
MCA is a toxic and corrosive organic acid that must be treated with great caution.
We offer extensive technical service and advice. Training and instruction are indispensable to guarantee safe handling. As an expert in the field of MCA for over 50 years, we have established safety procedures for handling and storage of the products.
