Care in handling and storage of the product. All FMC peracetic acid products are stabilized solutions. Packaging containers for FMC’s peracetic acid products are equipped with a vent to relieve internal pressure and must be stored upright. To maintain product quality, FMC recommends storage in a cool, dry, well ventilated area where the temperature of the container will not exceed 30 °C (86 °F). The oxidizing nature of peracetic acid requires storage separate from other flammables and non-compatibles.
