Understanding GHS Compliance
17th September 2018
The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) aims to make chemical hazards become more easily identifiable.READ MORE
This great range replaces toxic and dangerous products such as MEK, Acetone and Gun Wash as well as products containing carcinogens (cancer forming) including Benzene and its derivatives.
Low hazard doesn’t mean low performance. Purasolve solvents dramatically lower health risks for workers, whilst boosting productivity by being more effective and easier to handle than the chemicals they replace. Specially designed recyclable formulations can be reused for years, reducing chemical inventory and dramatically lowering disposal and environmental compliance costs.
For workers, Purasolve offers the peace of mind in knowing that their employer places their health and safety first. Most Purasolve products require little, if any, PPE, meaning that workers can get on with the job without complications.
For employers, Purasolve offers the ultimate option for ridding the workplace of solvent-based hazards. Almost all traditional solvents are inherently dangerous, and even with strict handling procedures accidents still happen. The best and most effective defence against solvent hazards is to reduce the risk by removing the chemical from the workplace altogether – that’s where Purasolve comes in.

lives, improve business and drive innovation.
This month, a retired Melbourne gardener brings the first Australian lawsuit against Monsanto, maker of Roundup. The plaintiff, Michael Ogalirolo, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2011. He believes that his cancer was caused by years of exposure to glyphosate, which is the active component in Roundup.READ MORE

With the help of Envirofluid, this mining company identified and mitigated a major health risk while reducing costs and improving cleaning results. In line with emerging national WHS standards it achieved this result at the top of the risk control hierarchy by substituting dangerous products with safe ones thus removing the threats entirely.READ MORE
Forgacs removed the Acetone health risk and fire hazard by substituting it with purasolve Surface Prep which, despite being safer, produced better results with far less product used. Overall this occurred at a cost saving to Forgacs.READ MORE
PURASOLVE SURFACE PREP AFTER 30 MINUTES DWELL TIME = The glue can be removed easily by hand or with a wetted rag without the need for the PPE and handling, storage and disposal costs that are required when using Toluene.READ MORE
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are any organic compounds with a high vapour pressure that evaporate easily into the surrounding air. Some VOCs are extremely dangerous and can pose serious health risks including cancer. Minimising the risks, however, just takes a little understanding and some extra consideration when choosing things like solvents, cleaners, paints and other products.READ MORE
