TetrachloroethyleneTetrachloroethylene (C2Cl4) is a colorless volatile liquid that is noncombustible and contains an ether-like odor. It is used as a solvent, drying agent for metals, and in the manufacturing process for other chemicals. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Tetrachloroethylene. That’s why we suggest one of the following: DRUMLoc, CHEMLoc
