Safety and Transport- Handling of Sodium Cyanide.

Kemcore offers two forms of packaging for solid sodium cyanide.

1- 1000 kg wooden boxes- 20FT shipping container loads 20 tons. (20 boxes)

For packed product, we use one-tonne wooden boxes for the storage and transportation of our solid sodium cyanide briquettes. Our wooden box packaging complies with

  • UN1689 regulations
  • the International Maritime Dangerous Goods code
  • International Cyanide Management Institute’s Code Protocols


Our sodium cyanide briquettes are filled into polypropylene (PP) bulk bag, which is then sealed to protect the product from moisture. The bags are then placed in a box with a wooden pallet base.


2- 50kg Steel drums - 20FT shipping container loads 17.5 tons. (350 drums)


50kgs of sodium cyanide packed into one layer of PP/ plastic bag, then packed in an iron drum. The PP bag keeps the sodium cyanide dry, free from extraneous material. 

Kemcore sodium cyanide services also includes logistics services where  sea shipping, land transportation or any combination of these can be offered.


All our transporters are ICMI certified.
