BUY BATTERY ACID
Battery Acid is the common generic name given to different strengths of Sulphuric Acid or Sulfuric Acid, a widely used, strong mineral acid with a number of applications. As its name would suggest, Battery Acid is most widely used to ‘top-up’ lead-acid batteries and different types of batteries require different strengths of Battery Acid. Generally, the automotive industry uses batteries which are filled with 1.26 Specific Gravity (SG) Battery Acid whilst heavy-duty industrial-use batteries which are commonly used in electric Fork Lift Trucks and also golf carts, tend to be filled with 1.28 Specific Gravity (SG) strength Battery Acid.
Regardless of the Specific Gravity of Battery Acid, the same hazards, packaging and labelling requirements would apply, in addition to the same requirements for transportation. Details of Battery Acid Hazards, Battery Acid Packaging and Battery Acid Labelling can be found on the relevant pages of this website.
When handling or working with Battery Acid, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) should always be worn. This will include approved safety goggles or glasses, safety boots or shoes, protective clothing and PVC or Nitrile gloves. When handling large quantities of Battery Acid, fume extraction should be used as the fumes generated from Battery Acid are extremely hazardous and can cause serious, long-term damage to soft tissue to the soft nasal tissue, respiratory system and lungs. Ingestion of Battery Acid can be fatal.
The invention of the world's first lead-acid type battery can be traced back to one Gaston Plante, a French physicist who presented his model to the French Academy of Science in 1860. He researched the differences between dynamic electricity from batteries and static electricity, and later invented the Rheostatic Machine which was a predecessor of the Marx Generator which is still in use today.
Before you buy Battery Acid, it is important to recognise that it is classified as a Hazardous substance and should only be handled in accordance with current legislation. Battery Acid must only be transported by an approved courier with ADR trained staff. Failure to do so is a breach of the law and could impose serious penalties.
Many people now prefer to buy Battery Acid from a reputable company with a Quality Management System such as ISO 9001:2000. Some suppliers also have accreditation to the Environmental Standard ISO 14000 which denotes them to be working in the most responsible way for the benefit of the environment. This is particularly important today as there is now much greater awareness of environmental impact and Battery Acid suppliers with 'green' credentials are actively sought by many companies.
