Tylose MH 6000 YP4 packaging, storage, safety instructions:
As with all organic powdered substances, cellulose ethers pose a dust explosion hazard.
To avoid flammable dust-air mixtures, the risk of dust formation and accumulation must be minimized.
Avoid fire sources such as open flames, hot surfaces, sparks, electrical disturbances.
Tylose MH 6000 YP4 begins to decompose at around 200 ° C.
The flash point is greater than 360 ° C.
Tylose MH 6000 YP4 burns easily and the fire can spread.
Tylose MH 6000 YP4 can be stored for a long time if stored in a closed container or in its original packaging, in a dry place at room temperature.
For high-viscosity types, slight loss of viscosity may occur after long-term storage (more than 1 year).
Tylose MH 6000 YP4 absorbs water from humid air.
The opened Tylose MH 6000 YP4 container must be resealed.
