16. Are there material safety data sheets (MSDS) available for matches, lighters & fire starters?
Yes, KM has for each product group (matches, lighters, fire starters) material safety data sheets available with useful information about handling, storage, transport etc.
The MSDS exist in various languages. Please don't hesitate to contact us in case you may need them.
17. Are matches, lighters & fire starters are classified as dangerous goods during shipping?
Lighters are considered as dangerous goods for transportation by road or by sea, there is no release for the shipping. Thus, a single filled lighter counts already as dangerous goods!
For matches one can apply the so-called limited quantity rule according to chapter 3.4 ADR/IMDG (limited quantity, LQ). Hence, matches are not classified as dangerous goods for shipping by road or by sea, provided that the gross weight of one dispatch carton does not represent more than 30kg. For fire starters (no matter if solid or liquid) one can apply the same rule as for matches. Ergo, no special dangerous goods equipment is needed for the transport according to ADR legislation. For air freight shipments there are more strict rules available according to IATA, here each product is considered as dangerous goods. Special air freight cartons and packaging units are necessary.
18. Is there a best-before date for matches?
No, there is no best-before date for matchboxes, provided that they are stored in a proper way. Please pay special attention to a cool & dray storage and that the matchboxes are well closed. Protect the matches from heat and direct sunlight.
19. Can I store my ordered goods at your warehouse until I finally need them?
Yes, please feel free to store your ordered goods completely at our warehouse and call-off partial quantities as required. Please don't hesitate to contact us in case you may need a storage.
