Methyl Chloride

Methyl Chloride (CH3Cl) is a colorless gas with faint sweet odor (also known as chloromethane), shipped as a liquid under its vapor pressure, which may react violently or explosively with interhalogens, magnesium, zinc, potassium, sodium or their alloys. Because it is flammable, we recommend a safe chemical storage building that meets specific regulations for storing Methyl Chloride. Please review our fire rated products: FIRELoc, SUPERLoc, DRUMLoc
