HANDLING & STORAGE
Sheltered and temperature controlled storage conditions (temperature <25°C). No stacking of pallets. Remove the plastic film protection after transport once in good storage conditions.
6 months in flakes form and 6 months in block form. As this product is sensible to gradual oxidation and to compaction, appropriate storage and a strict inventory control is to be followed (oldest material used first), especially during hot periods. Be aware that temperature, time and pressure is of influence on the re-massing phenomena.
Block form in cardboard drums of 200 kg on wrapped pallets of 800 kg. Flaked form in 25 kg paper bags on wrapped pallets of 750 kg net weight.
