Fibrecoat health & safety information


Handling

Use Fibrecoat in well-ventilated areas and keep away from direct sunlight. Avoid inhalation and contact with eyes, skin, and clothing by wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment as outlined below.

Ground and bond all containers when transferring the material, empty containers may still retain product and product vapour. Do not expose to heat, flame, sparks or other ignition sources such as cutting, welding, drilling, grinding or static electricity. Do not pressurise and provide adequate safety showers and eyewashes in the area of use.

Protective glasses

Make sure you have on a pair of wrap around safety glasses before handling any Fibrecoat base resins, finishing topcoats or cleaning solutions. Always have two bottles of sterile eyewash on site – one for the active site area and one for backup.

Gloves

Never let the Fibrecoat base resin, finishing topcoat or equipment cleaning solution come into contact with the skin. Always wear either heavy duty latex disposable gloves or heavy duty reusables available to buy online.

Protective overalls

Always wear protective clothing when using Fibrecoat materials, the disposable coveralls available in the store are the best way to protect your clothing and uncovered areas.


Storage

Along with keeping you and your family safe, storing Fibrecoat roofing materials in the correct way will also maintain the life of the system allowing for optimum performance.

Fibrecoat system

The Fibrecoat base resin and finishing system should be stored tightly closed in its original container. Keep in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Keep separate from food, feedstuffs, fertilisers and other sensitive material.

Acetone

Store the acetone in a tightly closed container in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Keep away from heat, sparks and any open flames.


Disposal

Any remaining Fibrecoat materials need to be disposed of in the correct way, without causing harm to the environment.

All remaining Fibrecoat resin and finishing system are to be disposed of safely in accordance with local/national regulations.

The Allbase recycling programme lets you return any remaining materials to us to ensure the waste product is disposed of responsibly.


Transportation

The Fibrecoat system along with the acetone cleaning solution are classed as hazardous materials and are delivered to you with transport companies who are trained and licensed to do so. Road regulations also demand that you must comply with certain aspects, particularly when transporting these materials to site.

For any vehicle below 7.5 tonnes the driver doesn’t need an ADR licence however they must have received details and instructions from the company to ensure the driver is aware of the hazardous nature of the materials being transported and how to react to an incident.

Fibreglass roofing professionals who transport these hazardous goods should have eyewash, first aid kit and fire extinguisher in their vehicles at all times to meet safety regulations. Transport emergency cards or information in writing for contractors regularly buying are available to download and should also be kept in the vehicle on display at all times.
