Sulfur, molten

Sulfur, molten (S) is a yellow crystalline solid that is insoluble in water. It is transported as a liquid and hot enough that materials may melt. The liquid chemical causes thermal burns on contact, and is an irritant. Used in sulfuric acid production, petroleum refining, and pulp and paper manufacturing; strong reducing agent.. Because it is flammable, we recommend a safe chemical storage building that meets specific regulations for storing Sulfur, molten. Please review our fire rated products: Flammable storage
