2,4-Toluene Diisocyanate

CAS RN:584-84-9

Storage Conditions

Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location. Separate from acids, alkalies, oxidizing materials, amines, and water. Immediately remove and properly dispose of any spilled material.
Storage temp: 75-100 deg F
Protect containers against physical damage. Store in a cool, dry, well- ventilated location, away from all possible ignition sources. Outdoors, detached or isolated storage is preferred. If stored in tanks, it should be blanketed with an inert gas such as nitrogen or with dry air. Care should be taken to prevent contact between isocyanates and strong alkali, which cause uncontrollable polymerization.
Storage in polyethylene containers is hazardous due to absorption of water through the plastic.
Isocyanates are transported in railroad tank cars, tank trucks, tanks in ships, containers, and drums. They are stored in steel tanks and processed in steel equipment. For long-term storage stainless steel is recommended. To avoid contamination by atmospheric moisture, a dry air or inert gas blanket is essential. /Isocyanates/
