Introducing Formic Acid

  July 8, 2021

Formic Acid

 

 

Attributes and Applications

Formic acid is a clear, colorless, mobile liquid with a pungent odor, prepared from formamide or as the formation of by-product ammonium sulfate. It is extensively used as a silage additive in Europe, while almost 15% of global demand is as a preservative in animal feed. Other potent applications are in textile dyeing, finishing, leather tanning, intermediates for pharmaceuticals, insecticides, pesticides, drilling fluids food, and drink preservatives. Smaller uses are in rubber products, de-icing, and electroplating.

 

Current Europe Situation

Global demand is forecast to grow at between 2% and 3% per year. Demand in Western Europe as an additive in animal feed is very strong and increasing at 8-10% per year, making it the largest consumer at more than 217 600 tonnes per year.

 

Handling and Packaging 

It is highly corrosive and a moderate fire hazard. Exposure to it can severely damage the skin, mucosal surface, and eyes, and can lead to asphyxiation. Ingestion can cause severe poisoning and death. Store the acid in the original containers and the pre-filled pads in acid-safe containers outside in a cool, dry, well-ventilated secured storage area with a strong locking mechanism.
