Aluminum ChlorideAluminum Chloride (AlCl3) is a white to gray powder with pungent odor, corrosive, toxic, water- and air-reactive. Aluminum chloride solution is a straw-colored liquid. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Aluminum Chloride. That’s why we suggest one of the following: DRUMLoc, CHEMLoc, TURFLoc
