That's what an MSDS should look like for the most part. It simpley tells you what the product is made of/from, care and handling as well as medical precautions or remedies if needed.

For the other information, you need to ask for the specification of the product. It should look something like this (Seachem's Matrix)...

Mean Diamter 2.39 mm
Density 0.49 g/cc
Pore Volume (PV) 0.55-0.65 mL/cc
Total Surface Area (TSA) 500-600 m2/cc
TSA/PV 770-1100 m2/mL
Iodine # >1000
Molasses # >600
pH in distilled water <7.2
Leachable Phosphate <0.00001 g/cc
