2-Ethyl hexyl acetate can be stored in tanks constructed from normal carbon steel (e.g. A 283 grade) or aluminum. In this case, measure must be adopted to exclude atmospheric moisture, as otherwise the product's quality may be impaired (increase in acid value and moisture content; discoloration by rust in steel tanks). If severe demands are imposed on the quality of the 2-Ethyl hexyl acetate , it should be stored in stainless steel tanks. We advise against galvanized or tinplated iron tanks. Drums containing the product must be kept tightly closed in a well-ventilated place.
