New Packaging for Nitric Acid

Caledon Laboratories would like to inform all customers who purchase ACS Reagent Grade Nitric Acid (Catalogue No. 7525-1) that our packaging of this product will be changing.

Due to new transportation regulations, nitric acid in concentrations of less than 90%, and packaged in glass bottles, must be packed in non-reactive packaging material. It has been determined that cardboard is reactive, and not suitable as a packing material. As a result, nitric acid will now be packaged in 100% Styrofoam.

With this change, the cases of nitric acid will now come to you as 4 x 2.5 L. This new format will apply to both of the following Caledon catalogue numbers:

  1. 7525-1-29 – 2.5 L glass bottles
  2. 7525-1-61 – 2.5 L PVC-coated glass bottles

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our office at 1-877-CALEDON, or speak to your Caledon Account Manager.
