Compatible Chemical Storage

There are several systems to separate incompatible chemicals for storage. At UAA, we use a color code system developed by JT Baker. Striped colors indicate the chemical must be stored separately from others in the same color group. 

White - Corrosive acids, both organic and inorganic.

White Stripe - Corrosive bases, both organic and inorganic.

Yellow and Yellow Stripe - Oxidizing agents.

Red and Red Stripe - Flammable liquids and flammable solids.

Blue and Blue Stripe - Toxic, Poison, Hazardous to Health

Orange - Most common inorganic salts, buffers, sugars, and other relatively non-reactive chemicals
