At Barnastock we make very meticulous chemical packaging services that allow us to pack your chemicals, to label them and to distribute them in only one logistics operation thanks to our perfectly adapted facilities. All these elements enable us to meet all the legal and safety requirements related to this specific matter.
As we explained it in several of our previous posts, there are a number of rules to follow when handling dangerous goods. Obviously the same applies when it comes to chemical packaging.
First of all it is necessary to make sure that the chemicals packagings are of a good quality, for this will help prevent any accidents such as spills or deterioration, not only for safety purposes but also for economic purposes. Indeed, what would you do if the chemical you were storing ware actually spilling out of the package you designed? This would represent both a damages and money lost. Hence this is why is so important to wisely choose your chemical packaging.
According to the Spanish regulation NTP 635, chemical packages have to be designed so that they won’t allow any spill or won’t break if they were to fall. This is even more important when it comes to storing corrosive chemicals because these substances could deteriorate the chemical packaging with the passing of the years.
Also, it is important to carry out a regular review of the condition of your chemical packaging as well as their labels to make sure everything is in order. They have to remain in optimal conditions and should not suffer from any deterioration. Plastic chemical packagings should be designed so that they will remain intact for 5 years, even though we would advise you not to store any chemical inside your facilities for too long.
When it comes to the materials used to create these chemical packagings, transparent glass is quite common even though its fragility makes it dangerous. If one was to use this kind of chemical packaging, it would thus be compulsory to be extremely careful when handling it, as well as respecting several safety rules such as storing the chemical in the lower shelves.
All these elements show us that chemical packaging is indeed a serious matter. One should never take it lightly. This is why Barnastock offers its client to take charge of the storage of their products so that they won’t have to go through complex procedures and won’t have to worry about how they should proceed to safely transport or store their chemicals.
