Section VI. HANDLING, USING, AND STORING EXPENDABLES
This section contains general instructions for handling, using, and storing expendable material such as adhesives,
solvents, coatings, lubricants, sealing compounds, and silicone heat sink.
Use adhesives, cleaning solvents, and sealing compounds in a well ventilated area away from
open flames. Adhesives, cleaning solvents, and sealing compounds are harmful to skin and
clothing, can burn easily, and may give off harmful vapor.
Before using any expendable material, always read the label attached to the container. Abide by all warnings and
instructions that may be listed on the container label. When using material that is supplied in large containers, always pour
or separate the amount necessary to perform the job, into a smaller container. This practice will eliminate the possibility of
contaminating the larger container. Never pour any unused portions back into the original container as this may also
cause contamination. Use only clean brushes for applying expendables to prevent mixing of materials and always clean
brushes immediately after use.
Adhesives. Adhesives are used to fasten items together. An example would be, using adhesive to fasten
gaskets, seals or pads.
