Material Handling & Storage Guidelines

  1. When material is received by customers, it must be inspected for damage that may have occurred in transit (such as tears, forklift damage, broken pallets, etc.). If damage is detected, notation must be made on incoming transportation paperwork.
  2. During storage, material must be kept in the original packaging to protect the material from moisture and prevent rust.
  3. Material must be kept in a clean, dry area at a constant temperature.
  4. If material is partially used, unused material must be re-wrapped in the rust resistant bags, if provided.
  5. Stock must be rotated. Maximum shelf life is 6 months.
