Calcium OxideCalcium Oxide (CaO) is a base, a white to gray solid with oxidizing properties. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Calcium Oxide. That’s why we suggest one of the following: CHEMLoc, DRUMLoc
