Grade Specifications

Maximum level of impurities: Residue after ignition 0.02%, Cl 0.001%, SO4 0.002%, Heavy Metals (as Pb) 5ppm, Fe 5ppm, Substances darkened by sulfuric acid P.T.

Applications

It is used most commonly by athletes to describe the intense pain felt during exhaustive exercise. Used to make cultured dairy products, as a food preservative, and to make chemicals. Useful for the creation of highly aligned electrospun poly-L-lactic acid fibers for nerve regeneration applications. Poly(lactic acid) nanocomposites with various organoclays shows useful application for gas permeability.

Notes

Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents. Keep container closed when not in use.
