Scope of Application: ?  
Major Applications: 營t is used as feedstock for synthetic assistants and medicine, or intermediate for chemical fibers and dyesruff. 
Process Method: ?  
Packing: Special tank truck or steel cylinder qualified in accordance with safety supervision regulation on gas cylinder. The container shall have evident mark to show the inflammable, explosive and toxic content.  
Packing Size: ?  
Storage: In special storage tanks; the storage and filling area shall be provided with necessary safety protections .  
Transportation: Tank truck.  
Safety Precautions: 1. The product is inflammable, explosive and toxic liquid, boiling point 10.4℃, flash point ?7.8℃, forming an explosive mixture when combined with air, the limit of explosion between 3%~100%. Therefore, all the precautions should consider how to avoid forming atmosphere easy to burn or explode.
2. Ethylene oxide will polymerize when temperature is higher than 40℃; The reaction would speed up due to exothermal nature and cause evaporation up to explosion, so that the product shall be stored in cool, dry and ventilated place, far away from heat and fire sources.
3. Ethylene oxide is toxic chemicals, having inhibition on human抯 central nerve system resulting in acute or chronic toxication. Therefore, every operation related to ethylene oxide shall be in accordance with documents concerning labour protection and safety.
