Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
Normal measures for preventive fire protection.
Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
Further information: VDI 2263 "Dust fires and dust explosions; dangers, evaluation, preventive measures."
Ensure there are sufficient retaining facilities for water used to extinguish fire.

Storage:
Store in the original receptacle, keeping this tightly sealed, under cool and dry conditions.

Further information:
Protect from sunlight, warmth and heat.
In order to ensure due transportation, make certain that stacks are of the correct height, containers are securely fastened so as not to fall off, and labelled according to the regulations.
