Plastic is most commonly used for packaging d-Limonene, however, most plastics will react adversely over time. Eventually plastic packaging will start collapsing (also known as paneling). While this does not affect the integrity of the plastic, it does render the packaging unsuitable. Occasionally the d-Limonene will permeate the wall of the bottle and cause labeling to fall off.

The best recommendations for d-Limonene are Fluorinated bottles or PET bottles. For larger packaging containers the Baritainers are recommended. 
If tubing is needed we suggest Fluran®, Chemfluor®, Tygon® SE-200, Nylon or Tygothane®.

Note: As with any chemicals, it is up to the end user to determine suitability for use with our products. We suggest the end user purchase samples and do their own testing before purchasing larger quantities.
