Diethyl Ether is mainly used as the solvent in the organic synthesis, and also in the manufacture of smokeless gun powder, cotton gum and camera film, as well as the extractant or reaction medium of natural products.

● Steel drum, 140kg/drum
● Store in cool, dry and ventilated warehouse at low temperature, a temperature under 25℃ is favorable; Keep away from flame and heat;
● Avoid direct sunlight;
● Vibration in the air or static friction can also cause the spontaneous combustion;
● Separate from combustible materials and oxidant during storage and transportation;
● Warehouse with large storage should install automatic sprinkling devices and carbon dioxide sprayer;
● Not suitable for a long-term storage in order to prevent the deterioration.
