Storage & Handling
It is recommended to keep ALCHEM 145 in a cool and well ventilated place. ALCHEM 145 should preferably be stored in stainless steel tanks or steel lined with epoxy-phenolic resins. Avoid materials as aluminium, copper and copper alloys. It is suggested to store the product at temperature between 40°C and 50°C. It is preferable to avoid h eating above 50°C and to store under nitrogen in order to minimise yellowish phenomena. To prevent oxidation during prolonged storage, it is recommended to blanket the product with nitrogen.
