Packaging and shipping
Ethyl silicate can be stored in plastic or metal tanks. And it should stay away from flames or sparks. This product is offered in 20 and 200 kg plastic tanks. Due to the strong absorption of moisture, the atmosphere must be kept in the main containers and sealed.
Store in the original container and sealed in a dry, low-light environment at a temperature of 10-30 اد C to prevent the material from evaporating and hydrolyzing as much as possible. If this product comes in contact with the skin, it should be washed immediately with water and if swallowed, see a doctor. This material is flammable and its vapors are toxic.
