  • Nitric acid is a strong acid and strong oxidizer. An oxidizer contributes oxygen to reactions, which can result in combustion or explosion.  Nitric acid reacts vigorously or violently with many combustible and flammable materials, including flammable organic solvents, bases, reducing agents, metals and metal compounds
  • HANDLE WITH CARE: Use extreme care when pouring Nitric Acid to avoid splashes or spills. Replace and tighten cap on container immediately to avoid accidental spills.  Have an abundant water supply handy to dilute any accidental spills. Cover open containers containing Nitric Acid with a cap, plug, or watch glass to avoid venting gases. When using nitric acid, work under a fume hood cleared of incompatible materials not needed for your process. When diluting any concentrated acid, always add the acid to water slowly. NEVER ADD WATER TO CONCENTRATED ACID. Product should be used within 2 years of purchase
  • AVOID INHALATION: Nitric acid vapors and fumes are irritating to the respiratory system. Inhalation of high concentrations of nitric acid vapor must be reported immediately. Delaying treatment can result in pulmonary edema and even death.  Do not open indoors except under a fume hood. Do not inhale fumes. Use a supplied-air respirator, such as an SCBA respirator at all times when working with Nitric Acid
  • AVOID SKIN CONTACT:  Nitric acid can severely burn the eyes and skin.  Wear protective gloves resistant to Nitric Acid, such as blue nitrile gloves. Wear an impervious apron or smock and long sleeves
  • USE EYE PROTECTION: Wear eye protection, such as polyethylene goggles or a polyethylene face shield to protect from splashing, it being advisable to wear both goggles and a face shield
  • STORAGE: Store nitric acid in the original container.  Dilute solutions must be stored in acid-resistant bottles, such as borosilicate glass with teflon caps. Polyethylene (PTFE) and standard HDPE are unsuitable for storing Nitric Acid.  DO NOT store nitric acid near incompatible materials with which it may react. These include acetic, chromic, and hydrocyanic acids, acetone, aniline, carbon, hydrogen sulfide, flammable materials, readily nitrated substances, organic solvents, bases, reducing agents, and metals and metal compounds.  Store nitric acid in its own storage cabinet near floor level whenever possible. Otherwise, store nitric acid near floor level with inorganic acids, and segregated from other acids in a secondary containment vessel, such as a plastic bin, tub, or tote. Storage Temp. < 75ºF (<24ºC)
  • DISPOSAL AND SPILLS: This material and its container must be disposed of as hazardous waste.  If less than a few milliliters of concentrated acid or a few hundred milliliters of dilute acid is spilled, the spill can be neutralized by adding soda ash or sodium bicarbonate and rinsing profusely with water.  If the spill is large (i.e. greater than 1 liter of concentrated acid, or more than you have materials to handle), immediately evacuate the laboratory, close the doors, and promptly call 9-1-1


In case of accident, if you feel unwell seek medical advice immediately.  24 Hour Emergency: Chemtrec 800-424-9300

  • Eyes – Get medical attention immediately and flush eyes with plenty of water for 15 minutes
  • Skin – Flush skin with plenty of water for 15 minutes
  • Inhalation – Immediately move outside and get fresh air. If breathing is difficult give oxygen. Immediately call a poison control center or medical doctor for treatment advice. Sip water if able to swallow. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Do not induce vomiting unless instructed to do so by a poison control center or medical doctor

    How do you open the bottle?

    • admin_bsc (verified owner)

      Just use constant pressure with a quick thrust to break the seal. It takes some effort. If you have strong hands you can do it by hand. Heat can increase pressure inside and make opening more difficult, so you can try cooling the bottle first. Try a jar opener, which is a round rubber “cloth” that grabs and gives you more torque. Most grocery and hardware stores carry these. If that doesn’t work you can use a large channel lock pliers VERY CAREFULLY, protecting the cap from the pliers with a jar opener or something similar. If you will be using this or similarly packaged products routinely then a plumber’s pliers makes it easy. These are channel locks with rubberized jaws that will protect the cap. You can pick these up at Ace, Home Depot, or Amazon. Whichever method you use, we recommend opening either outside or under a fume hood. Thanks for choosing Bausch.

      The bottles are tightened to 29 ft-lbs to insure an airtight seal and prevent gassing and leakage during transit. The initial opening of the red tamper-evident locking caps requires extra force to break the tabs connecting the bottom security ring to the upper cap. Changes in temperature may cause increased pressure of the sealed acid, and this will make the initial opening even more difficult. Cooling to around 50ºF should help. An hour or so in a refrigerator should bring the temperature down to where it will open more easily. A pipe pliers with coated jaws also may be used, but exercise great care. Working outside with eye and face protection, rubber gloves for a good grip, and wearing full clothing, apply increasing controlled and even force until the cap moves 1/4 turn ccw. These pliers are available at Harbor Freight and on Amazon.
