PACKAGING AND STORAGE
Cem-FIL® 54 rovings are protected by a shrink-wrap polythene film, open at the top which should not be removed when the product is in use. Rovings are packed on pallets either with or without carton boxes. Cem-FIL® 54 rovings should be stored away from heat and moisture, and in their original packaging. Optimum conditions are temperature between 15°C and 35°C and humidity between 35% and 65%. If the product is stored at lower temperatures it is advisable to condition it in the workshop for at least 24 hours before use, to prevent condensation.
QUALITY STANDARDS – CERTIFICATION
Cem-FIL® 54 fibers are manufactured under a quality Management System approved to ISO 9001.
Cem-FIL® fibers are not classified as dangerous by the Regulation 1272/2008/EC. For more information, please refer to our Safe
Use Instructions Sheet.
