How to Clean-Up Nitric Acid Spill

Nitric acid is a colorless inorganic acid when it’s pure. The exposure of the nitric acid chemical to other nitrogen oxides chemicals creates a yellowish color. This acid dissolves metals, irons, copper, and silver. Commonly used in fertilizer production for plants and grass, nitric acid can also be seen in facilities that have a business in woodworking, sanitizing, rocket propulsion, and metal finishing.

Nitric acid is a dangerous chemical! Workers should wear protective equipment such as gloves or face shields to prevent skin contamination from nitric acid.
