PACKAGING

All pure, laboratory and pharmaceutical materials are delivered in the standard retail packaging, or in wholesale containers.

Customers may ask for non-standard packaging. Wholesale packaging of chemicals includes sacks, paper bales, metal or plastic drums with the UN code, or UN containers, truck tanks, or rail tankers.

The containers are divided into returnable and non-returnable.

TRANSPORT

Hazardous substances and products delivered by PENTA are transported so that each type of substance is always transported in a container type allowed by the applicable transportation regulations. Regardless of the means of transportation, hazardous substances are classified and labeled as follows:

Class 3 Flammable liquids
Class 4.1 Flammable solid substances,self-decomposing substances, and explosive desensitized solid substances
Class 4.2 Self-igniting solid substances
Class 4.3 Substances that in contact with water generate flammable gases
Class 5.1 Substances sustaining burning
Class 5.2 Organic peroxides
Class 6.1 Poisonous substances
Class 7 Radioactive substances
Class 8 Caustic substances
Class 9 Other hazardous substances


Hazardous substances can be packed and transported with substances of other classes only if the transportation regulations allow so, and provided that the transported substances cannot cause a dangerous reaction in the event of an accident.

The regulations concerning road and railway transportation are mostly identical.The European Agreement on Transporting Dangerous Goods on Roads (ADR) defines the principles of transportation in Europe. PENTA transports hazardous substances to customers in the Czech Republic and in other European countries using its own vehicles approved for ADR. The railway transportation of hazardous substances is governed by the RID international regulations. PENTA transports in particular flammables in its own or rented rail tankers.

One of the crucial parameters, which a UN sub-committee assigned to each hazardous substance or group of hazardous substances that have identical or similar properties, is the UN code. The classification used in this catalogue consists of the UN code, ADR/RID class, classification code, and packaging group. These important transportation details can be found in the specification sheets for each hazardous substance.

However,our customers may also collect the ordered goods by themselves at our Production Division in Chrudim or at the Pharmaceutical Division in Prague. Our customers frequently use the services of well-established forwarding agents.
