What You'll Find on the Materials Data Sheet

In a culture that can have any bit of information at our fingertips within mere seconds, it's become something of an inherent expectation that we be provided any data we are seeking.  At Manhattan Flameproofing, we understand this reality, and we know how important it is to be as accommodating as possible. When it comes to flameproofing, at times business owners will have concerns regarding the chemicals and products we use in the treatment process. They want to know if they're toxic, safe for the public, and safe for the environment. While we assure our customers that all of the chemicals we use are water-based, non-toxic and approved by the FDNY, sometimes more information is requested.  We can easily comply with this request by providing a materials data sheet.

If there are specific aspects pertaining to the chemicals we use, we can provide those facts via the materials data sheet. 

Below is the information you'll find on a sheet created for each of the chemicals we use.
