APPEARANCE: Odourless, white crystals.
A product which is usually used in stain removal, tanning and removing rust. A powerful cleaner capable of cleaning metal in many industries and other lab processes. Safety information and warnings on back of bag and side of tub that the product will arrive in.
Oxalic acid's main applications include cleaning or bleaching, especially for the removal of rust (iron complexing agent). Its utility in rust removal agents is due to its forming a stable, water-soluble salt with ferric iron. Oxalic acid is an important reagent in lanthanide chemistry. Hydrated lanthanide oxalates form readily in very strongly acidic solutions in a densely crystalline, easily filtered form, largely free of contamination by nonlanthanide elements. Thermal decomposition of these oxalate gives the oxides, which is the most commonly marketed form of these elements.
We supply all our powder based products in bags that come in a special sealed tub with the safety information clearly displayed.
