Potassium HydroxidePotassium Hydroxide (KOH) is a white corrosive solid used in the manufacture of bleach and soap; water-reactive. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Potassium Hydroxide. That’s why we suggest one of the following: View All Chemical Storage Products
