HANDLING AND STORAGE
|Follow general occupational hygiene such as, wash hands after use. Do not use hooks for handling bags. Multiple handling may lead to formation of fine powder which may cause dusting during usage. Use personal protective equipment while charging the material. To avoid dusting, keep minimum distance between bag and the hopper. Use proper dust collection system to avoid particle contamination in the production area. Follow safe procedures while loading and un-loading of product.
||Store the material in a clean, dry place at below 35'C away from direct heat, sunlight and moisture. slight pH drop is possible over prolonged storage. In case of slight drop in pH, it is fairly safe to use the material as long as the pH is equal to or above 7.0. In the original sealed condition when stored as suggested the shelf life of the product is at least 2 years. Soft easily breakable agglomerates may be formed on storage. Since the material is hydroscopic in nature, use the product within a week after opening the bag.
