Supply form: Flammable transparent liquid.

Packaging: Ethylene glycol (MEG) is shipped in rail-way tank-cars, as well as in aluminum and steel non-galvanized drums.

Transportation: Ethylene glycol (MEG) in drums is transported by all means of covered transport. Ethylene glycol (MEG) in bulk is transported in rail-way tank-cars of aluminum or non-corrosive steel.

Storage: Ethylene glycol (MEG) stored in sealed containers made of aluminum, non-corrosive or aluminized steel. Ethylene glycol (MEG) in drums should be stored in sheltered non-heated warehouses. Drums should be stacked vertically maximum three tiers high.
