Isopropyl alcohol is a colorless, flammable chemical compound with an alcohol odor. It is miscible in all proportions with water and organic liquids and has excellent solvent power for many organic and inorganic substances. It also evaporates quickly, leaves nearly zero oil traces, compared to ethanol. Thus, it is widely used as a solvent and as a cleaning fluid, especially for dissolving oils. Isopropyl alcohol was also used as a solvent for coatings or for industrial processes.
Under the Fire Safety (Petroleum and Flammable Materials) Regulations, storage and transportation of petroleum and flammable materials (P&FM) is under the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) licensing control.
Anyone who intends to store or transport petroleum and flammable materials beyond the stipulated exemption quantities are required to obtain a licence from SCDF.
If you do not possess the P&FM storage license, we request that you activate an order only when you have fully consumed the P&FM products in your premise to ensure that you do not stock P&FM products exceeding SCDF’s stipulated exemption quantity.

All storage of P&FM, regardless of quantity stored, have to comply with fire safety requirements for storage of flammable materials.
