Amyl Mercaptan

Amyl Mercaptan (C5H12S) is a clear colorless to light-yellow liquid with an offensive odor. Flash point 6°F. Less dense than water and insoluble in water. Hence floats on water. Vapors are heavier than air. May be toxic by inhalation. Because it is flammable, we recommend a safe chemical storage building that meets specific regulations for storing Amyl Mercaptan. Please review our fire rated products: Fire-rated, FIRELoc, SUPERLoc
