Glacial Acetic Acid

Glacial Acetic Acid Specifications

Test Specification…..BP
Characters It occurs as a crystalline mass or clear, colorless, volatile liquid.
Identification

Sulfates Not more than 50 mg/L
Iron Not more than 5 ppm
Residue on Evaporation Not more than 0.01%
Heavy metals Not more than 5 ppm
Assay Not less than 99.0% and not more than 100.5%

Shelf life, Storage and Packing
It should be stored in a segregated area in a cool and ventilated place away from combustible materials. Keep in a tightly closed container, sealed until ready for use. It is packed in 25kg or 50kg HDPE bags or drums as required.
