Skydrol Product Safety

ALL IN FOR SAFETY

Skydrol fluids are phosphate ester-based fluids blended with performance additives. Care should be taken in handling Skydrol fluids to keep them from spilling on plastic materials and paints that tend to soften. Skydrol fluids will not harm most clothing but materials like rayon acetate and some types of rubber-soled shoes may soften and deteriorate when exposed to Skydrol fluids. 

PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) such as gloves, safety glasses to minimize potential exposure, and in some cases a respirator may be required where engineering controls are not met to reduce airborne concentration. For safety precautions specific to your Skydrol product, refer to the product safety data sheet (SDS) which can be accessed from our product detail pages.
