Phenol (C6H6O) is a toxic and corrosive, colorless, solid with a sweet, tarry odor. It has an asthetic quality that numbs rather than burns and is used in polycarbonates, epoxies, nylon, herbicides, and pharmaceutical drugs. Because it is flammable, we recommend a safe chemical storage building that meets specific regulations for storing Phenol. Please review our fire rated products: Flammable storage, FIRELoc, SUPERLoc
