Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Substance is of limited stability, but when stored in coated, unopened drums at temperatures not exceeding 20 - 25°C, the decomposition is slow.

Heating above 55°C may only take place in connection with further processing of the substance and then only temporarily and under controlled conditions.

In an industrial environment it is recommended to avoid all personal contact with the product, if possible by using closed systems with remote system control. Otherwise, the material should be handled by mechanical means as much as possible. Adequate ventilation or local exhaust ventilation is required. The exhaust gases should be filtered or treated otherwise.


Like other acids, Isubstance will corrode iron. Corrosion of iron is further activated by the presence of water. Storage should therefore take place in unopened drums or in properly protected tanks (e.g. lined with glass, polypropylene, epoxy or phenolic resin) in an inert gas atmosphere (e.g. nitrogen).

If free from moisture, tanks of acid-resistant steel, such as 316 or V4A, can also be employed.

Storage at temperatures not exceeding 25°C is recommended.
Substance should not be heated above 55°C and also local heating above this temperature should be avoided. Protect against strong heat from sunshine or other source, e.g. fire.
