Nitric Acid Australia
In Australia, we use nitric acid to produce ammonium nitrate, and it is used by our customers to produce organic nitrates and inorganic nitrates.
Nitric acid is a transparent, colourless to yellowish liquid which readily fumes. It is a strong oxidising acid and is highly corrosive. Commercial grade nitric acid is typically 62 per cent weight for weight.
Nitric acid safety and transport
We are committed to storing and transporting our nitric acid safely by following strict safety standards across our operations. To find out more about our commitment to safety, visit our Safety and transport page.
It’s our policy to provide a unique Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for each of our products, including those not classified as hazardous material by WorkSafe Australia. The information included in each MSDS should be used to help users develop occupational health and safety procedures to maintain the health and safety of everyone involved.
