Paints and Coatings
The paint and coating industry is a dynamic one with ever changing demands, especially on small- and medium-sized companies. There is a move toward consolidation, continuing economic pressure, competition from overseas companies, and providing more value-added services to your customers. Creating high quality products and being profitable in this environment is hard enough. On top of this, safety data sheets must now meet new and ever-changing regulations without disclosing unnecessary details to competitors.
Whether your products are specialty inks, powdered coatings, or water or oil-based paints, SDScribe™ provides a simple, cost-effective way to create SDSs. Optional features include maintaining an inventory of raw materials and finished products, and creating batch production records which can allocate against raw materials stock.

SDScribe™ includes a template for non-hazardous paint products. When you create an SDS using a template, the new SDS will already have content in many sections, saving you time. Complete other parts of the SDS using a selection of stock phrases which are relevant to particular fields on the form.
You can customize a template so that it is more relevant to your product line. You can even create your own templates from completed SDSs – you identify content that is not common to the other SDSs, and SDScribe™ removes it from the template.
SDScribe™ comes preloaded with technical information that will save you countless hours of manual data entry.
