U unsatisfactory resistance
1 explosion hazard due to possible material/chemical reaction under rotor failure conditions
2 OK below 26 ºC only
3 Flammability hazard. Not recommended for use in any type of centrifuge because vapors may be ignited by exposure to electrical contacts. Depending on the centrifuge type, such exposure could occur either during normal centrifugation or under failure conditions.
