Corrosion Testing

Are you selling or shipping a potentially corrosive product in Canada?  Do you want to confirm or downgrade your classification and packing group, saving you time and money?

Corrositex® is the lowest cost, fastest, and most accurate non-animal OECD/GHS approved corrosion test available

Dell Tech Laboratories is the exclusive Canadian supplier of InVitro Corrositex® Kits and the leading accredited Corrositex® testing lab in the country.

There is no requirement to test chemical mixtures under WHMIS/HCS 2012/GHS/TDG, however, if you do not test, then the mixture inherits the labeling of the individual hazardous ingredients. For example, a product containing an alkali like sodium hydroxide or an acid like hydrochloric acid must be labeled corrosive without testing.

Dell Tech Laboratories and Corrositex® can help you:

  • Remove the corrosive symbol from your product label,
  • Save money and time by lowering packing and shipping costs,
  • Downgrade your packing group enabling you to ship larger quantities,
  • Avoid controversial animal testing

Many of Dell Tech Laboratories Clients have been delighted to see their GHS classification go from 1C and even 1B to non-corrosive.

TDG Packing Group: The key implication of Packing Groups is that it defines the sizes that are permitted to be shipped as ‘Limited Quantity”. When dangerous goods are shipped as Limited Quantity they are exempt from TDG requirements for Documentation (Shipping Document & Consignor Certification), Placards on the truck & TDG labels on the container, UN TDG spec packaging, TDG training, Emergency response plans and accident release reporting.

GHS Classification: The GHS Classification of a product dictates which hazard symbol must be on the product label.  Consumers do not like seeing the corrosive hazard symbol on a product.  While weight of evidence may classify a product as corrosive, only laboratory testing can prove if a product is not corrosive.
