Non-Hazardous Consumables

The European CLP Regulation EC 1272/2008 (on the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures) brings EU legislation into line with the GHS (Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals), a regulatory framework adopted by the United Nations to identify hazardous chemicals and alert users to their potential danger. The GHS, which has been adopted by many countries worldwide, now likewise serves as a basis for international and national regulations on the transport of hazardous goods.

A series of standardised messages, pictograms, labels and safety data sheets is used to identify the dangers arising from chemical substances.

PFINDER’s development of new and improved products reduces the hazard potential of the substances concerned - with unchanged or even better usability.

Some current examples:

PFINDER 100 / 101

Despite the significantly stricter limits that now apply to the declaration of ingredients on labels, we have managed to ensure, by means of formula optimisation, that our widely used fluorescent magnetic-particle concentrate can continue to be supplied without any labelling obligation.


A new development that promises to set new standards, as the alternative to oil-based, black magnetic-particle suspensions supplied in aerosol cans. PFINDER 240 is a black, magnetic-particle suspension supplied in an aerosol can – but with no labelling obligation, thanks to the fact that it is water-based and uses a non-flammable propellant.


Testing oils used as a carrier medium for magnetic-particle concentrates are normally labelled “Xn / Harmful to Health” due to the risk of being breathed in. Newly developed PFINDER 555 fulfils all the main requirements of EN ISO 9934-1 with respect to carrier media for magnetic particles, and is label-free.
