Storage & Handling

Processing Guidelines

Material Handling

Aegis® PIR-H55ZP is supplied in sealed containers and drying prior to processing is not required. However, higher moisture is the primary cause of processing issues. If drying becomes necessary, a dehumidifying or desiccant dryer operating at 80°C(176°F) is recommended. Drying time is dependent on moisture level. More information about safe handling procedures can be obtained by requesting the Safety Data Sheet.
