6) How do I dispose of used containers and is the material classed as hazardous waste?
The condition of this product will determine the required method of disposal. Used containers with fully cured product remaining around the edges or bottom of the container should have the hazard label removed or obscured before disposal as general building waste. When disposing of the used containers, ensure that they are empty of as much product as possible. For single component products; leave the containers to allow the residual product to cure and for multi-component products; mix the remaining components together and allow the material to fully cure. Uncured/Liquid product should be disposed of as hazardous waste.

7) Can Uretech HFS be supplied in different colours?
Yes. Uretech HFS can be manufactured to any desired colour however the resin colour is almost entirely hidden by the selected aggregate. When a colour not provided by the aggregate is required (demarcation) then Uretech TrackSafe can be used to overcoat the HFS and provide a range of colours.
