Product Details

Application: Ascorbic acid is a naturally occurring weak acid that is sometimes known as vitamin C.  As a food additive, it is often used to fortify produced food or to restore vitamin C losses from production. While it is most commonly associated with food applications, ascorbic acid also promotes plant growth and protection in agriculture, as a component of polymer processing, in cosmetic, and in cleaning agents.

Compatibility: Ascorbic acid is incompatible with bases, cyanides, sulfites, nitrites, thiosulfites, and strong oxidizing or reducing agents. Please see SDS for full safety and compatibility information.

Packaging Options: Typically available in drums, totes, and bulk. Contact us or ask your representative for further information.
