Formic acid 85% Manufacturers, Suppliers, Exporters

Formic acid 85% is principally used as a preservative antibacterial agent in livestock feed, in dying textiles, tanning leather and electroplating.


Formic acid 85% is abundant in nature and has been used for many years as an environmentally friendly alternative in industries such as textiles, natural rubber and leather processing. It is also used in agriculture, as well as in the production of medicines, cosmetics, detergents and disinfectants. It has excellent properties in controlling acidity, while at the same time effectively restricting microbial growth.

Formic acid is the strongest of the simple, unsaturated carboxylic acids. Furthermore, unlike other organic acids, formic acid has the advantage of being both a carboxylic acid and an aldehyde. It acts, therefore, both as an acidifying and a reducing agent, which clearly gives formic acid enhanced potential for use in industry.

Formic acid 85% Applications

Formic acid 85% is principally used as a preservative antibacterial agent in livestock feed, in dying textiles, tanning leather and electroplating. In the poultry industry, it is sometimes added with feed to kill E. coli bacteria. It acts as a reducing agent for the catalytic reduction of nitrate in water.
