Determination of Properties


The SDS writing lab at MSDS Authoring Services can also perform the necessary testing to determine your finished product’s or compound’s physical and chemical properties. The physical and chemical properties that are commonly tested for finished products or compounds’ chemical SDS typically range from pH, odor, boiling point, solubility in water, specific gravity, melting point, freezing point, evaporation rate, auto ignition temperature, flash point, volatile organic compounds (VOC), and vapor pressure.

Safety Data Sheets are used for employees who may be exposed to potentially hazardous products at work, employers who need to be aware of the proper storage methods for potentially hazardous products, emergency responders such as firefighters, hazardous material crews, emergency medical technicians, and emergency room personnel who might come into contact with potentially hazardous materials. Chemical SDSs, are not meant for consumers and are used for those who come into contact with potential chemical safety hazards.

Due to chemical safety hazards, it is important that MSDS Authoring Services’ SDS writing lab can help determine these properties for chemical SDS’s which have a tremendous effect on how emergency personnel and employees handle the specified materials. By fully analyzing products to be used in chemical SDS/MSDS sheets, chemical solutions will be much clearer regarding the precautionary measures that must be taken to resolve any problems arising from hazardous materials, chemicals in the workplace, chemical safety hazards, or chemicals hazards. All SDS/MSDS sheets written by MSDS Authoring Services abide by the SDS/MSDS writing requirements set forth by the following organizations to increase safety and consistency further, to name a few: American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) and the European Economic Community (EEC).
