Supply form: Flammable transparent liquid.
Packaging: Product 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. Product 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. Product in drums should be stored in sheltered non-heated warehouses. Drums should be stacked vertically maximum three tiers high.
