Product description

Technical sulphuric acid is a colourless liquid with no smell. It violently dissolves in water releasing large amounts of heat. Sulphuric acid has so high affinity to water, that is a good dehydrating agent. Sulphuric acid is produced through a contact process by sulphur dioxide oxidation in air in the presence of vanadium catalyst to sulphur trioxide through its absorption in water or diluted sulphuric acid. Sulphuric acid is a highly caustic liquid causing dangerous and difficult to heal burns.

Application and use

Used in the production of inorganic and organic chemical compounds including fertilizers; catalytic processes; pH adjustment; as a dehydrating agent; in mineral and ore extraction and processing; surface etching and cleaning; electrolytic processes; gas production and absorption processes; production cells containing sulphuric acid; as a chemical reagent; for industrial cleaning.
