ParaformaldehydeParaformaldehyde (OH(CH2O)nH (n = 8 - 100)) is a white flammable solid. It is a polymer of formaldehyde as well as a suspected carcinogent that is used in fungicides, bactericides, and manufacture of adhesives. This chemical may be depolymerized for formaldehyde. Because it is flammable, we recommend a safe chemical storage building that meets specific regulations for storing Paraformaldehyde.
