Storage And Handling
  • TRIDAC ISO-6 should preferably be stored in stainless steel tanks.
  • It is suggested to keep the product at temperature below 40°C, it is preferable to avoid heating above 60°C and to store under nitrogen in order to minimize yellowish phenomena.
  • TRIDAC ISO-6 is a cloudy liquid at room temperature and it becomes a solid wax at temperature lower than 20°C. Improvement of appearance and handling at low temperature can be achieved by mixing the product with 15 weight% water to obtain a clear liquid up to a temperature about 5°C.
  • At room temperature TRIDAC ISO-6 is not water soluble.
  • Shelf-life is 36 months from production date for product in its original and sealed packaging.
