Safety and Health Concerns
A glacial solution is an anhydrous highly concentrated solution of ethanoic acid, and as such must be handled with extreme care. Even though ethanoic acid is classed as a weak acid, glacial solutions are still very corrosive. Prolonged exposure to high concentrations of ethanoic acid may cause throat, nose and eye irritation, as well as skin burns. More serious cases may result in permanent damage to the lungs and upper respiratory tract.
It’s important to note that any symptoms may not appear until a few hours after the incident. To avoid such risks, appropriate clothing, including goggles and gloves must be worn at all times. In this case, common latex gloves offer very little protection in case of spillage, and nitrile rubber gloves are a safer option. All safety information can be downloaded from our website.
In addition, glacial ethanoic acid can become flammable at high temperatures – above 40 degree Celsius – by forming explosive mixtures with air at these temperatures. It’s always important to store this compound in a cool and well-ventilated area.
