We have listed a limited amount of shipping and safety information under each item to assist purchasers when ordering. Some or all of the following information is provided:


We have provided the registry number that uniquely identifies a chemical in the registry maintained by the Chemical Abstract Service of the American Chemical Society. This number is used to identify chemicals in government regulations and most chemical information services.


The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) requires all chemical shipments to be transported in accordance with regulations that include specific regulations regarding shipping documentation, marking, labeling, packaging, and emergency response information.  When a chemical has been designated as hazardous materials for the purposes of transportation in accordance with U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), the proper shipping name, hazard class, ID number, and packing group assignment are indicated. NOTE: This information may be slightly different for shipments made in accordance with International Air Transport Association (IATA).


Materion Electronic Materials complies fully with the requirements of the Department of Transportation (DOT) and recognizes its responsibility in providing for safe transport of chemicals. Generally, most of our shipments containing hazardous materials can be shipped by UPS or FedEx. For domestic US shipments, there are specific hazardous materials (mainly 6.1 and 4.3) that UPS and FedEx may require to be in packaged in a DOT Special Permit  (DOT-SP) packaging. If a DOT-SP packaging is needed per the carrier’s requirements, a fee will be added to the invoice. NOTE: UPS is the only air-freight carrier that adheres exclusively to DOT regulations. Materials shipped by air typically conform to the IATA regulations. Materion also reserves the right to apply DOT and IATA exceptions like ORM-D and small quantity exceptions in an effort to reduce freight costs and some of our hazardous products can be shipped by a truck line more economically than UPS or FedEx. We do not ship any of our chemicals with the U.S. Postal Service.

Materion's registration information is available upon request.
