Safety Data Sheet Layout Guide

(according to GHS rev. 3)

SECTION 10: Stability and reactivity

10.1 Reactivity

[Describe the reactivity hazards of the substance or mixture in this section. Provide specific test data for the substance or mixture as a whole, where available. However, the information may also be based on general data for the class or family of chemical if such data adequately represent the anticipated hazard of the substance or mixture.

If data for mixtures are not available, ingredient data should be provided. In determining incompatibility, consider the substances, containers and contaminants that the substance or mixture might be exposed to during transportation, storage and use]

10.2 Chemical stability

[Indicate if the substance or mixture is stable or unstable under normal ambient and anticipated storage and handling conditions of temperature and pressure. Describe any stabilizers which are,or may need to be, used to maintain the product.

Indicate the safety significance of any change in the physical appearance of the product]

10.3 Possibility of hazardous reactions

[If relevant, state if the substance or mixture will react or polymerize, releasing excess pressure or heat, or creating other hazardous conditions. Describe under what conditions the hazardous reactions may occur]

10.4 Conditions to avoid

[List conditions such as heat, pressure, shock, static discharge, vibrations or other physical

stresses that might result in a hazardous situation]

10.5 Incompatible materials

[List classes of chemicals or specific substances with which the substance or mixture could react to produce a hazardous situation (e.g. explosion,release of toxic or flammable materials, liberation of excessive heat)]

10.6 Hazardous decomposition products

[List known and reasonably anticipated hazardous decomposition products produced as a result of use, storage and heating. Hazardous combustion products should be included in section 5 Fire-fighting measures of the SDS]
