July 01, 2022

Sodium hydroxide is a “slippery” chemical that seeks leak paths in tanks. It is also extremely corrosive to human tissue and highly toxic if ingested, so it must be handled with care. Finally, if caustic soda is not kept and stored at a specific temperature, it will crystallize and become a solid.

The best bag material for packing caustic soda in polyethylene bags.
