We recommend you follow our Safety and Handling guidelines.

It is important to check with national, state, provincial and local environmental regulatory authorities prior to disposing of any material designated as waste. In some cases, uncontaminated PPG powder coatings products are considered to be non-hazardous industrial waste. However, it is the obligation of the waste generator to properly characterize the waste and determine the regulations applicable for proper disposal. This is particularly important if powder coatings products have been mixed with other materials. The characterization includes determining the composition and character of the waste. The SDS is a source of information to identify hazardous ingredients in the powder coatings product. However, the presence of hazardous ingredients in the product does not necessarily mean the powder coatings product waste is a hazardous waste. In some cases the solubility of an ingredient and its ability to produce a leachate will impact whether a waste exceeds testing or regulatory levels. For example, barium sulfate is insoluble undermost conditions, and its presence does not necessarily make a product containing it a hazardous waste.
As stated previously, it is the obligation of the waste generator to understand the appropriate regulations and manage the waste in compliance with regulatory requirements. To minimize dust generation during disposal, uncontaminated powder product can be melted and solidified. Most PPG powder coatings will melt between 150-200o F (65-95o C). However, be sure to review the potential environmental, health and safety measures that are appropriate for your operations, as well as any applicable regulatory requirements before melting the product.
