Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)/SDS - Safety Data Sheets are designed to provide both workers and emergency personnel with the proper procedures for handling or working with a particular substance. MSDS's/SDS include information such as physical data (melting point, boiling point, flash point etc.), toxicity, health effects, first aid, reactivity, storage, disposal, protective equipment, and spill/leak procedures. These are of particular use if a spill or other accident occurs. Federal law requires chemical manufacturers, importers and distributors to produce an MSDS/SDS for each hazardous chemical they produce, import or distribute.
MSDS's/SDS's are meant for:
- Employees who may be occupationally exposed to a hazard at work;
- Employers who need to know the proper methods for storage etc.
- Emergency responders such as fire fighters, hazardous material crews, emergency medical technicians, and emergency room personnel.
Where available, MSDS's/SDS's for applicable products sold by Kaman have been made accessible on this site. This site is Kaman's primary method of furnishing MSDS/SDS documents. However, we will continue to furnish paper copies of MSDS/SDS for those products for which an MSDS/SDS is required upon request.
Please note that although the information, opinions and recommendations contained in these Material Safety Data Sheets are compiled from sources believed to be reliable, we accept no responsibility for the accuracy, sufficiency, or reliability or for any loss or injury resulting from the use of the information. Newly discovered hazards are frequent and this information may not be completely up to date.
