Detailed Product Description:
This is a specific dilution of sulfuric acid in deionized water for use in
traditional lead/acid batteries. No further dilution is necessary.
This dilution is comprised of 37% (w/w) of semiconductor grade
sulfuric acid (minimum 99.9% purity) in 18-Meg-Ohm-Cm deionized water.
Sulfuric Acid (also spelled “Sulphuric”) is a colorless, dense, oily liquid with
a pungent odor. Noncombustible. Soluble in water. Very reactive. Mixing
with water generates exothermic reaction that cause significant temperature
rise in solution. Corrosive to most metals. Most commonly used for electrolytes
and metal cleaning.
The corrosive properties of sulfuric acid are accentuated by its highly exothermic
reaction with water. Therefore, skin burns from sulfuric acid are potentially more
serious than those of comparable strong acids (e.g. hydrochloric or nitric acid), as
there is additional tissue damage due to dehydration and particularly due to the
heat liberated by the reaction with moisture in the tissue. The danger is obviously
greater with more concentrated preparations of sulfuric acid, but even the normal
laboratory "dilute" grade (approx. 1 M, 10%) will char paper by dehydration.
