Safety Data Sheet Information Center

Dow Corning is implementing important changes that will impact both the appearance and the content of Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and product labels.

The SDS is a document that contains information about potential hazards and how to work safely with the chemical product. It also contains information on the use, storage, handling, transportation and emergency procedures related to the hazards associated with the product.

What you should know…
  • Dow Corning has outsourced its SDS authoring to an external service provider. As a result of that, you might notice a change in the look and layout of our SDS and, potentially, labels as well. The content will be in compliance with regulations in each geography. Safety Data Sheets are expected to be re-authored over the next 24 months.
  • Dow Corning has also started its transition to the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of classification and labeling of chemicals, targeting completion by June 1, 2015 for the US and the EU.
  • You might notice new information on SDS and labels due to GHS requirements. They might include new pictograms, revised chemical classifications, related warnings, and precautionary statements due to hazard reporting threshold changes.
  • You will continue to receive our SDS the same way as before and they remain available for download at
Product formulation and composition are not changing. The new SDS and labels continue to observe all requirements of state, national, and international governmental regulations and provide a comprehensive guide to the safe handling of Dow Corning products. As always, you should review and compare new SDS and labels to existing versions, paying particular attention to any new information and take appropriate action as necessary.

Resources are available to help you get the answers you need today about these changes in format, as well as GHS implementation. Please let us know how we can help you!
