7.    HANDLING AND STORAGE

7.1   Handling
                    When totally dry, static electricity can accumulate on beads. Keep away from open fire
                    and hot surfaces. May cause slippery surfaces. If product is to be used with strong
                    oxidizing agents use experts to evaluate safe operating conditions. Do not fill a glass
                    column with dry ion exchange resin. Dry beads swell with water and may break the
                    column.

                           according to EC Directive
                           91/155/EWG
ANALYTICAL INSTRUMENTS
                           Date 18.04.2008

On skin:           Doesn’t usually cause irritation to the skin.
On eyes:           May cause slight and temporary irritation. The solid bead product can cause irritation or
                   corneal injury due to mechanical action.

12.   ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

12.1 Ecotoxicity Not applicable.

12.2 Mobility      Not applicable.

12.3 Permanence and Decomposition
               Material is expected to degrade only slowly in the environment.

12.4 Bioaccumalation Potential
               Not applicable.

12.5 Other Hazardous Effects
                May change pH.

13.   DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS

                   Pure ion exchange resins are not considered as hazardous waste material, and they can
                   be disposed of on a municipal landfill. Disposal of large amounts require consultation of
                   the landfill personnel. Incineration is not an appropriate way of treatment of ion exchange
                   resins, especially if they contain chlorine residues.

                   The resins are, however, considered as hazardous waste, if they contain any hazardous
                   chemical, or if the pH is basic or acid. The limit concentrations for classification as
                   hazardous are defined in European Union Commission Decision 2001/118/EC.

14.   TRANSPORT INFORMATION

                   Not applicable.

15.   REGULATORY INFORMATION

                   This product is not classified as Hazardous for Supply according to the Preparation
                   Directives 67/548/EEC and 88/379/EEC.
