Storage Information
  • Small quantities should be stored in sealed bottles, totes and drums at a temperature of 25°C (77°F) or less. Liquid bulk quantities should be padded with a dry inert gas, such as nitrogen, to prevent air from entering the tank or container.
  • The product should not be exposed to temperatures in excess of 60°C (140°F) for long periods of time to avoid product degradation. ALFOL 1012HA Alcohol shows no physical and/or chemical changes for at least 36 months after the manufacturing date when stored under conditions that minimize exposure to air, moisture and extreme temperatures.
  • It is recommended to test the alcohol for key specifications every 36 months after the manufacturing date. Please be advised that Sasol Chemicals will not be responsible for retesting the product.
