Hazardous Materials Identification System (HMIS)
The HMIS ratings associated with our products are designed to supplement and assist existing hazard communications programs. They are Integra's suggested ratings only. Actual ratings should be verified and defined by end-users with alterations made depending on experience, quantity of material, and storage and usage conditions.

The first three characters of the HMIS rate the hazard risk of the chemical in the following three categories respectively: Health, Fire and Reactivity. The fourth character provides a recommendation for suitable protective equipment.
