The product is supplied dry and ready to use in moisture-proof ackaging in the form of cylindrical or flat pellets. Its bulk density is about 0,7g/cm3. Standard packs are the special 25kg bag and the 000kg bulk container (octagonal IBC=intermediate bulk container made from corrugated board with a liner bag). Subject to agreement other forms of packaging and shipment in tankers by road or rail are also possible. All containers are tightly sealed and should be opened only immediately prior to processing. To ensure that the perfectly dry material delivered cannot absorb moisture from the air the containers must be stored in dry rooms and always carefully sealed again after portions of material have been withdrawn. The product can be kept indefinitely in the undamaged bags.
Experience has shown that product supplied in IBCs can be stored for about 3 months without any adverse effects on processing properties due to moisture absorption. Containers stored in cold
rooms should be allowed to equilibrate to normal temperature so that no condensation forms on the pellets.In case processing is done under conditions as recommended (cf. processing data sheet) melts are thermally stable and do not generate hazards by molecular degradation or the evolution of gases and apors. Like all thermoplastic polymers the product decomposes on exposure to excessive
thermal load, e.g. when it is overheated or as a result of cleaning by burning off. Further information is available from the safety data sheet.
