Description: When stored at tropical temperatures will clog together. The process is one of "sintering," whereby the crystals, at temperatures approaching the melting point, reform themselves into a more compact state, without any actual liquefaction. Menthol and related compounds are particularly prone to this. On account of the low melting point of menthol, the effect will show itself even in temperate climates if the storage is prolonged. See also IMDG Code & US CFR.
