Safety Issues
Nano-lab monitors closely the relevant literature on the possible health hazards related to our products.
Even though research studies so far (to the best of our knowledge ) show that nanotubes are not hazardous to health,
we recommend that our customers read and follow the recommendation of Material Safety Data Sheet which call for use of masks, gloves, etc.
