Description Formic Acid

Formic acid is a colorless, highly corrosive liquid with a pungent odor.
Attacks metals and fabrics. Miscible with ether, acetone, ethyl acetate, methanol, ethanol. Partially soluble in benzene, toluene, xylenes. It dissolves approximately 10% in benzene, toluene and xylenes. Less soluble in aliphatic hydrocarbons. Methanoic acid decomposes on heating and on contact with strong acids (sulfuric acid) to form carbon monoxide. When heated to decomposition, emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. Causes corrosion of metals.

Formic acid is transported by rail and road.
Storage only in warehouses intended for storage. Stable under proper storage conditions.

Formic acid is used in the leather industry, in the process of dyeing and finishing textiles.
As a solvent for the production of adhesives and polymers.
Methanoic acid is also used as a coagulant in rubber manufacturing processes.
