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
