Corrosives are hazardous and can include a variety of acids and bases. They can quickly eat away at metal components, so it’s essential that you have the appropriate place to store them. Corrosive storage cabinets are the ideal solution because they protect the product, but they also allow the fumes to safely escape without causing an issue to employee health. Corrosives can also react with other chemicals and liquids, so it’s best to ensure that you’re storing them in the cabinet correctly. In fact, you may need multiple cabinets to ensure that one set of corrosives, such as the bases, don’t come in contact with the acids.
Corrosive storage cabinets can only do their job when you know how to use them correctly. For example, incompatible chemicals should never be placed in the same cabinet. If you’re unsure of what chemicals are compatible and incompatible, you can consult your safety sheet to determine how they should be stored. You can also choose to mount the documents onto the cabinet, ensuring that anyone who needs it can get the information quickly.
You can also find two cabinet styles, including flammable and polyethylene. Flammable cabinets are designed for any corrosives that are also flammable while polyethylene versions should only be used for non-flammable corrosives.
