Acetic acid (glacial) Storing Details

  • Flammable Details: It becomes a flammable risk if the ambient temperature exceeds 39 °C (102°F), and can form explosive mixtures with air above this temperature
  • Storage Details: Keep separated from incompatible substances, such as oxidizers. Store and handle in accordance with all current regulations and standards. Laboratory tests have shown that acetic acid, chemically pure, when stored in plastic drums has a shelf life of at least two years provided that it is st
  • Compatible Details: Strong oxidizers (especially chromic acid, sodium peroxide & nitric acid), strong caustics
