Hydrogen Chloride

Hydrogen Chloride (HCl) is a colorless fuming gas with a sharp odor, used in the manufacture of rubber, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, as well as gasoline refining and metals processing. Hydrogen chloride is a strong non-oxidizing acid, water-soluble to form hydrochloric acid. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Hydrogen Chloride. That’s why we suggest one of the following: CHEMLoc, DRUMLoc
