Silane (H4Si) is a colorless, flammable, poisonous gas that has a strong repulsive odor. It is very toxic, water-reactive, pyrophoric, and is a strong reducing agent. Because it is flammable, we recommend a safe chemical storage building that meets specific regulations for storing Silane. Please review our fire rated products: FIRELoc, Flammable storage, SUPERLoc
