Sodium Acetate Anhydrous
Sodium acetate anhydrous is a kind of white power or granule.These two versions are chemically identical and differ only in physical form.The granule is clean and offers the properties of non-dustiness,improved wettability,higher bulk density and improved free-flowability.
Sodium acetate anhydrous is available in USP/FCC/Technical/E262/ACS grades.

Eye contact:In case of contact with eyes,rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
Skin contact:Wash with water.Remove contaminated clothing,which should be washed before re-use.
Ingestion:Rinse the mouth with water.Obtain medical attention.
Sodium acetate anhydrous presents little fire hazard.
Sodium acetate anhydrous is used in the pharmaceutical industry,as a buffer in the photographic industry and as a supplement for animal feeds to increase the milk fat production of dairy cattle.It is also used in the production of dye stuffs,as a polymerization catalyst,as a polymer stabilizer,as a flavouring agent,and in the manufacture of hydroxyl oximes,which are used as extractants in hydrometallurgy.
