What is a SDS?

A Safety Data Sheet (SDS) is designed to provide both workers and emergency personnel with the proper procedures for handling or working with that substance.  A SDS will include information such as physical data (melting point, boiling point, flash point etc.), toxicity, health effects, first aid, reactivity, storage, disposal, protective equipment, and spill/leak procedures. These are of particular use if a spill or other accident occurs.



Where can I find a SDS?

There are several places you can get them...

  1. You can search KLA-Tencor SDS online.
  2. Your laboratory could have a collection of SDSs that came with the chemicals you have ordered.
  3. You can contact the Environmental Health & Safety Department or you can find a copy of the SDS on the web.
  4. You can retrieve SDSs from the manufacturer by calling or faxing their customer service department.
