Packing, shipping, storage: Butyl cellosolve is transported in specially designation rail tank-cars with stainless steel boilers of grade 12×18H1T type 15-1404 with aluminum barrels of type 15-1596.
Butyl cellosolve is transported packed in barrels, carloaded, in covered railroad tank cars by road truck and water transport as well as in railroad and road tank cars in compliance with the rules of cargo transportation.
Butyl cellosolve is stored in the tanks at the open sites, meeting the requirements for storehouses with flammable and toxic substances.
The guaranteed storage life is 6 months from the date of production.
