What is a nital solution?

Basically, a nital solution is a solution containing nitric acid and alcohol, typically used for routine etching of metals. This product is particularly suitable to reveal the microstructure of carbon steels.

The type of alcohol used to prepare this solution can be ethanol, methanol or a mixture, which may significantly influence how this solution can be used and safety procedures needed. If it’s true that mixtures of nitric acid and ethanol can be dangerous, as they become explosive in solutions over 10% nitric acid, mixtures with methanol are no less hazardous but for different reasons: methanol is highly toxic if ingested.

Hazardous identification

  • Flammable
  • Toxic if ingested, inhaled or via skin contact
  • Potential irreversible effects

Safety procedures

  • Avoid heat, flames and other sources of ignition
  • Avoid contact with alkali metals and strong oxidising compounds
  • Should be disposed of according to local authority requirements
  • Solutions, especially if above 5%, should not be stored in closed and cold conditions to reduce risk of explosion.
