Storage and Handling

Recommendations for the storage and handling of products supplied by Fernco.


Products should be checked for quantity and damage during transit. All rejects found during inspection shall be returned.

All products are to be stored and handled in conditions free from compression, tension or other deformation.

Attention is drawn to the need to keep the product away from heat, continual sunlight or intense artificial light. Also protection from ozone, mercury vapour lights or other high voltage equipment which could cause electrical discharges is advised.

Pipe Doctor should be stored in a dry place and away from UV light. If stored in freezing conditions, the water in the clear liquid part of the resin can freeze but once the normal temperature has resumed the resin will not be affected and will go back to its regular state.

In the unlikely event of exposure to extremely high temperature (70°C) in confined spaces, the isocyanate (brown liquid in resin) may be affected.


The method of storage shall be organised with the oldest products in store presented first for sale.


At the time of sale or despatch to site the product shall be visually inspected for signs of damage. The person responsible for the sale/despatch shall sign the advice note/invoice if not identifiable by a company code.


The storage and handling of Fernco and Flexseal products will be regularly inspected by a representative of the company.
