Safety Data Sheets (SDS)—formerly Material Safety Data Sheets—are a fundamental part of your product’s packaging requirements. These sheets contain vital information needed by the users of your material in safely handling and disposing of the goods you supply. Legal requirements for these documents vary by country and can be quite complex.
Andpak can take care of all these requirements for our customers. Our system will generate a proper SDS for inclusion in your shipments. Since national standards may vary from country to country, Andpak will deliver complying documents to meet these varying requirements. Further, Andpak will update your SDS as the information and requirements change. If requested, we will send documents to your team for review and approval prior to shipping.
Andpak delivers a complete solution for SDS generation.
Andpak has experience in producing thousands of labels compliant with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. We can design, update and reproduce the labels your product requires for both product identification and shipping requirements.
Fully compliant labels include the internationally accepted pictograms to identify potential hazards, clear product identification, and hazard or precautionary statements as needed. Specific and complex regulations govern GHS labels, the language used and selection of pictograms. Andpak can ensure your product meets these requirements and is properly labeled.
Our onsite label shop can fill almost any need, including pressure sensitive labels, silk-screening on containers and much more. Multicolor labels and complex artwork are all within our capabilities. And larger orders can be serviced with preprinted containers as well.
Many customers find significant logistical and financial advantages in Andpak’s custom blending services. These advantages may arise from bulk purchasing, lower shipping costs, minimizing product handling and reducing waste. In addition, savings can be achieved when combining bulk blending with subsequent use of several packaging options, and unified testing.
Our blending services will mix your raw materials or combine raw and partially blended materials as needed. Smaller quantity blending is a available when product “shelf life” is limited. Conversely, our warehousing services may allow for greater savings when we mix larger quantities that are packaged and stored for later shipment.
Blending service customers often request our Lab Services to certify strict QC or other standards with appropriate testing and documentation.
Please call us for more information on how our custom blending service can benefit your firm.
