All chemical products by law must have a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). Put simply a Material Safety Data Sheet is a document that contains information on the chemical make-up, use, storage, handling, emergency procedures and potential health effects related to a hazardous material. The MSDS contains much more information about the chemical than the label on the container. By law, MSD Sheets are to be supplied by the manufacturer or distributor. 45 Need a Pool Pro MSDS?
