2-Ethylhexyl methacrylate Storage
Avoid shine rain and high temperature in transportation.
Store the products in cool, shady and ventilated conditions, keep far away from fire.
6 months from date of production at a maximum storage temperature of 30℃


Gengeral hints: It can burn in fire! Polymerization may be initiated by contamination with peroxides, azo compounds, heavy metal ions, tert. Amines, S compounds. Polymerization is also induced by light. Atomospheric oxygen saturation in the monomer is necessary for stability. Storage temperatures should not exceed 35℃.
