Zirconium Tetrachloride

Zirconium Tetrachloride (ZrCl4) is a white fine powder, used as a source of pure zirconium, as a tanning agent, in analytical chemistry and treating textiles. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Zirconium Tetrachloride. That’s why we suggest one of the following: CHEMLoc, DRUMLoc

Zirconium Tetrachloride Storing Details

  • Flammable Details:
  • Storage Details: Keep separated from incompatible substances. Store and handle in accordance with all current regulations and standards. Store in compliant chemical storage building.
  • Compatible Details: Zirconium tetrachloride is incompatible with alcohols (ethanol), lithium metal, and tetrahydrofuran
