Product Data Sheet and Safety Data Sheet
A Safety Data Sheet (SDS) is a complete guideline to ensure that workers and emergency personnel have proper procedures for working with and managing a specific substance. It is provided to prevent mishaps and expensive downtimes.
It helps to know that the products classified as ‘Articles’ are exempt under OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard 1910.1200. This includes welding accessories such as gloves and jackets and small components like plugs and cords. They do not require safety data sheets or labels.

Product and Production Certifications
AWS – American Welding Society
The American Welding Society (AWS) was founded in 1919, as a nonprofit organization with a global mission to advance the science, technology and application of welding and allied joining and cutting processes, including brazing, soldering and thermal spraying. Nexal products conform to AWS specifications as listed in each respective product description.
AWS A5.10 specifies exact requirements for TIG and MIG welding consumables and identifies them as ‘Alloy Classifications.’ They are evaluated to ensure proper safety criteria for each alloy. R for TIG items and ER for MIG products establishes the approved limits for different welding consumables.
It helps to know that you can use some aluminum alloys for TIG welding processes but not for the MIG technique because it produces more metallic vapours than the TIG method. Some essential standards include AWS A5.01, AWS A5.10, and AWS D1.2.
CWB – Canadian Welding Bureau
The Canadian Welding Bureau was formed by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) over 60 years ago. The purpose of the Welding Bureau is to administer Canada’s national welding standards, which are embedded in the national building code and other industry specific documents.
ABS – American Bureau of Shipping
The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), a New York not-for-profit corporation, has been committed to setting standards for safety and excellence as one of the world’s leading ship classification societies.
