The American Brush Manufacturers Association (ABMA) announces that the Power Brush Safety Slips are revised to conform to CA Prop 65 labeling requirements.

CA Prop 65 requires warning labeling to be provided to allow consumers and end users to be aware if the products they are handling may contain any of the listed chemicals reported to be harmful.

Warning Labeling Q&A from OEHHA

The newly revised safety slips will now come in four (4) different styles:

Lead Warning Slip
Nickel Warning Slip
Silica Warning Slip
No Warning Slip

Please note the changeover will be a "running change" so please feel free to order slips as usual and as soon the the current style of slips are exhausted we will make the changeover to the new style slips.

For several years the Safety & Standards Task Force of the Industrial & Maintenance Division has directed the supply of safety slips offered by the ABMA to the industry. Recently, changes were approved that revised the prices for safety slips.

The printer will print the trilingual slips on white paper using background color coding of the slips to ease shop floor control.  The finished page size, with no bleeds, is 4.00” X 4.01 flat.

All prices are F.O.B. Bayard Printing, Williamsport, PA net 30 days and are as follows, per slip:
