Labeling

Each doff has a self-adhesive identification label, showing the product reference and the production date.

Each pallet has five identification labels detailing the product reference, pallet net and gross weights, production date and pallet production code.


Storage

It is recommended to store glass fiber products in a cool, dry area. The glass fiber products must remain in their original packaging material until the point of usage; the product should be stored in the workshop, within its original packaging, 48 hours prior to its utilization, to allow it to reach the workshop temperature condition and prevent condensation, especially during cold season. The packaging is not waterproof. Be sure to protect the product from the weather and other sources of water. When stored properly, there is no known shelf life to the product, but retesting is advised after two years from the initial production date to insure optimum performance.
