What containers can I store bleach in
Recommended most common bleach storage tank materials are HDPE, XLPE, fiberglass reinforced plastic, and chlorobutyl rubber-lined steel. Sodium Hypochlorite tanks should be rated to 1.9 specific gravity. These tank materials are resistant to sodium hypochlorite corrosion.
Is bleach flammable or explosive
So is bleach flammable? No – bleach (chlorine and non chlorine based) is a non flammable liquid. It will not catch fire by itself, but its oxidizing properties may help a fire spread in your house and burn more intensely.
Why is bleach stored in opaque bottles
Another factor is exposure to sunlight. Bleach is sold in opaque bottles because increased light will cause the liquid bleach's active ingredients to break down. Depending on its use, bleach is also susceptible to contamination in the laundry room due to exposure to humidity.
How long can bleach be stored
Bleach can expire. After a shelf life of six months, bleach starts to degrade. Even in its original bottle, bleach becomes 20 percent less effective as each year goes by. Bleach mixed with water at a 1:9 ratio (i.e. 10 percent bleach) is potent for about a day (it's more unstable in its diluted form).13 Feb 2006
