FluorineFluorine (F) is a pale yellow gas that condenses to bright yellow liquid. Fluorine gives off a pungent odor, and is used in toothpaste, mouthwash, and drinking water. Extremely toxic, a strong oxidant. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Fluorine. That’s why we suggest one of the following: CHEMLoc, DRUMLoc
