Storage & Handling

Storage

SYLFAT FA1 Tall Oil Fatty Acid should be stored dry and below 77 °F, (25 °C) and away from direct sunlight. The product must be retested after longer storage to ensure the properties are within specification limits. Since colour changes of >1 Gardner unit can be seen over time due to oxygen or heat exposure, testing of product in applications sensitive to color is recommended prior to use. If precipitation occurs, it does not affect the use of the product as a chemical raw material. Slight heating to about 104 °F, (40 °C) dissolves the precipitated material.
