Safe Use of Hydrochloric Acid
Concentrated solutions of hydrochloric acid – commonly referred to as fuming hydrochloric acid – can release hazardous fumes when in contact with air.
Even these fumes can have severe detrimental effects if inhaled or in contact with skin or eyes, with potential permanent effects on the respiratory tract.
Symptoms range from simple irritation of the nose to pulmonary oedema, or mild dermatitis to severe skin burns.
As such, it’s vital to follow safe procedures when handling this highly corrosive acid. A full MSDS sheet can be downloaded from our website.
In addition, this compound must be stored in a well-ventilated area and away from strong oxidising agents, such as bleach (sodium hypochlorite, NaClO) or potassium permanganate (KMnO4). If mixed, chlorine gas is produced, which is also toxic.
Use of Protective Clothing
Personal protective equipment is essential for all staff handling this chemical, including rubber gloves, eye goggles and chemical-resistant overalls and shoes to minimise the risk of injury in case of accidents.
