JP, at least you now recognize that that methyl hydrate and methanol are the same. That's progress.

Like I said, not listed anywhere on the labels, or talked about on site. Everyone has to learn something sometime, eh!

But it is right there on the MSDS.

Seriously, I appreciate the breadth of material covered in your trade school program. I am curious about how much was spent on safety, especially what we in the States call HAZCOM, or Hazard Communication. We have to provide information to our employees, and everyone else on the job site, information about the dangers if the materials that we're using. That means reading and understanding MSDSs and their newer replacement, SDSs

First 2 weeks was spent on safety (this was after taking and passing 10 WHMIS classes) fall arrest, ladder safety, scaffold, elevated work platforms, fit testing, etc. don't forget that trade school is just a small part of the learning process. Only 600hrs were spent in the classroom, I had another 6000+ of on site work.teaching the chemistry of solvents wasn't apart of the curriculum, now the chemistry of paint, that was the most boring and informative thing in first year!

water or thinner in the pump is not a problem. anything else I would never do. If you need to use a solvent to clean any material get it out of the pump as soon as it is cleaned. your seals and packings will appreciate it.
