Ammonium Bifluoride Suppliers In South Africa

What is an Ammonium Bifluoride?

Ammonium fluoride is an inorganic compound with the formula [NH₄][HF₂] or [NH₄]F·HF. It is produced from ammonia and hydrogen fluoride.

This colorless salt is a glass-etchant and an intermediate in a once-contemplated route to hydrofluoric acid.

What is the use of ammonium fluoride?

Ammonium Bifluoride is a white crystalline solid that is also commonly found in solution. It is used as a sterilizer, in electroplating, and in the ceramic and glass industries.

* Ammonium Bifluoride is on the Hazardous Substance List because it is regulated by OSHA and cited by ACGIH, DOT, NIOSH, and EPA.

Is ammonium bifluoride safer than HF?

Both HF and ABF are both hazardous, but ABF is not labeled as toxic in relation to DOT regulations. 

Ammonium Bifluoride is a less-toxic colorless salt and when added to water, ABF becomes a less aggressive version of hydrofluoric acid. That’s why it is very common in truck wash soaps and other cleaning products.

What is the pH of ammonium bifluoride?

< 3.6


Relative Density:1.03
Shelf Life:2 Years
pH:< 3.6

Is ammonium bifluoride soluble in water?

Ammonium fluoride is soluble in water to form hydrofluoric acid, a very corrosive acid that can cause severe corrosion of the skin, nose, throat, and eyes. Upon heating or exposure to strong acids or strong bases, ammonium bifluoride may release hydrogen fluoride, ammonia, and nitrogen oxide gases.

Is ammonium bifluoride organic or inorganic?

Ammonium Bifluoride, Flake is an inorganic compound that is a colorless salt that is used as a glass etchant. It is produced from ammonia and hydrogen fluoride.

Is ammonium bifluoride the same as hydrofluoric acid?

Even though they both produce a corrosive fluoride solution, ABF and HF are quite different. HF is water-soluble in all proportions while ABF is soluble only up to ~28% at room temperature.
