I always tell people to inform the recalcitrant supplier of an (M)SDS of their obligation under the HazCom Standard.  And that OSHA triples fines for willful violations.   Let them know that you'll give them 24 h to produce the required (M)SDS's or your next call will be to the OSHA enforcement (rather than compliance) department.  And then follow through on that if you don't get them.  I'm told that the OSHA promise (it's not a threat, it's a promise) works 99% of the time.

PS: For the benefit of the list, the importer is responsible for producing an MSDS and supplying that to any of their US distributors.

Re: MSDSs on 3D printer consumables

Well, I've about run out of ideas on how to get the MSDSs on 3D printer consumables.  I'm trying to set up ventilation for two models:

1.  The DWS 008J Digital wax manual makes the resin sound like death on a stick. Touch it only with gloves.  If it gets on the skin, head for hospital. Wear respirator or die.  But the company is in Thailand as far as I can see.  And the distributor for the one bought by the school I'm on a job for says "MS....what?"

2.  The other one is Z Corp  350 ZPrinter.  

And anyone who thinks people aren't touching and snorting the powders only has to see one of these after it has been in operation for a while.  You can write you name on the damn things.

Any help would be much appreciated
