ACID STORAGE CABINET
Acids are best stored on acid resistant trays in acid storage cabinets with a glass reinforced, cement base.

Trays should have sides high enough to contain spills and the cabinet should be clearly marked on the outside with the word 'ACIDS'. The inside surface of commercially manufactured cabinets is coated with a corrosive resistant epoxy enamel.
Examples of some acid incompatibilities are as follows21:
