SpecTech June 2015
SpecChem GHS Conversion As many of you may know, we are now using the new GHS standard. GHS stands for the Globally Harmonized System of the Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. This system was developed by the United Nations as a way to make sure everyone is on the same page when it comes to chemical regulations and standards on an international level. To date, over 65 countries have adopted GHS or are in the process of adopting the system. What is GHS? GHS is meant to be a comprehensive approach to: • Defining health, physical and environmental hazards of chemicals. • Creating classification processes that use available data on chemicals for comparison with the defined criteria. • Communicating hazards information in a uniform way on labels and safety data sheets. What is the impact for SpecChem? • The most noticeable will be changes to the safety labels, safety data sheets and chemical classification. • Labels will now include pictograms surrounded by a red diamond for materials categorized to possibly have health or physical hazards. • The new changes will start to take place on all SpecChem labels beginning June 1, 2015 (This is the official regulation date). • Products manufactured before the June 1 deadline can still be labelled according to the old standard, meaning until Dec. 1 you will see old and new style labels as we work to clear stocked inventories.

Safety Data Sheet Crystal Shine
Crystal Shine DESCRIPTION: CRYSTAL SHINE is a lacquer sealer developed for interior and exterior applications, to bring out the radiance and luster of exposed aggregate and other decorative concrete surfaces with a durable protective finish. CRYSTAL SHINE is ideal for stained concrete, exposed aggregate slabs, walkways, swimming pool decks and walls. CRYSTAL SHINE is formulated with a unique solvent blend allowing fast-drying, solvent-base performance along with VOC compliance in the OTC/LADCO/MRPO regions Actual/Maximum VOC content = 348 grams per liter (2.88 lbs/gal) APPLICATION: Surface Preparation - The concrete surface must be clean and free of standing water. Remove any sealer or other material that may prevent adhesion of CRYSTAL SHINE. Application to Fresh Concrete - Crystal Shine dries quickly!. Apply at a uniform coverage by spray at 250-350 sq ft /gal after all surface moisture has dissipated. Product may be sprayed with a hand held “pump-up” sprayer or an airless industrial sprayer. Best result are achieved when spray applied. If a roller or applicator is used, work quickly using a short napped solvent resistant sleeve to avoid entrapping air (bubbles) and cob webbing.
Batch #: 040115SS
between 55oF (12.8oC) and above 80°F (26.7°C) When sealing existing concrete, CRYSTAL SHINE may darken and highlight imperfections in hardened concrete surfaces, resulting in a mottled surface appearance. Prepare a test panel to ensure acceptable results. Do not apply in areas where there may be excessive internal water migration to the back of the film. Do not dilute or alter in any way. Read the MSDS before using the product.
SHELF LIFE: Shelf life of CRYSTAL SHINE in the original tightly closed containers is 2 years from the date of manufacture. Do not allow the accumulation of water, dirt or other contaminants.
FOR PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY
FLAMMABLE. Keep away from open flame Does not provide a base for cementitious materials. Treated surfaces may be slippery when wet with rain or other liquids. For best results apply when concrete surfaces or ambient temperatures are
MANUFACTURER'S NAME: SpecChem 1511 Baltimore Ave; Suite 600 Kansas City, MO 64108 CHEMTREC: (800) 424-9300 BUSINESS PHONE: (816) 968-5600 COMPONENTS DETERMINING HAZARD: Aromatic Hydrocarbon, T-Butyl Acetate, Diisodecyl Phthalate SIGNAL WORD: Danger GHS HAZARD CLASSIFICATION(S):
When an extra high gloss is desired or on especially porous surfaces, two applications are recommended . Allow the first application to dry for 1-3 hours or until surface is dry to the touch. Sealing Existing Concrete - the surface must be thoroughly cleaned and dried before applying CRYSTAL SHINE. Pressure washing with a strong alkaline detergent to remove dirt, waxes and oils is recommended. Acids will not sufficiently clean or remove dirt, curing compounds, or old sealer from concrete. Worn or porous areas may need a second application for uniform sealing and appearance. Allow 1-3 hours before 2nd application of sealer. In general, multiple thin coats (250 - 350 sq ft/gal) will provide a harder, more durable finish than a single heavy application. Dry time will be influenced by both temperature and humidity.
Use with adequate ventilation. Keep away from open flames.
