Chromic chlorideChromic chloride (CrCl3) is a chemical taking the form of hygroscopic powder or flakes, violet to green. It is corrosive to metals and contains toxic fumes of chlorine when heated to decomposition. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Chromic chloride. That’s why we suggest one of the following: CHEMLoc, DRUMLoc
