Stainless steel tanks are the best choice for storage. Steel drums should have an phenolic liner. If plastic is used we recommend packaging with fluorinated barrier.

In general, polyethylene and polypropylene should be avoided. PET (the material from which soda bottles are made) may be the best single polymer. Polymer composites with better properties are also available at a higher price. Avoid contact with materials that can rust. Improper use and storage may result in oxidation. Use CO2 or nitrogen blanket for bulk storage and minimize head space in filled containers.
