ANNEX 8: Incompatible Chemicals

Matrix of Incompatible Materials

(Adapted from University of Bergen)

This matrix gives a simplified overview of categories of chemicals that are incompatible. These chemicals should not be stored together as accidental mixing can lead to dangerous situations and accidents. Note that not all chemicals are covered by the matrix. Consult SDSs for specific information about incompatible materials (section 10) for any given chemical.

Additional information and a table of selected incompatible chemicals can be found at >intranett > HSE or HMS> section 7.1.4

X = NOT to be stored together
Green = can be stored together
