For optimal results, store away from strong alkalis, oxidising materials, strong acids and amines. The conditions must prevent the formation of sparks and static electricity and the product must avoid excessive heat for prolonged periods of time while in storage. Keep only in the original container. Keep container upright and tightly closed, in a cool, well-ventilated place. Protect containers from damage. Bund storage facilities to prevent soil and water pollution in the event of spillage. The storage area floor should be leak-tight, jointless and not absorbent.
