Cobalt acetate is a magenta crystal, soluble in water, acid and ethanol. Its specific gravity is 1.043 and melting point is 140℃. Cobaltous acetate may also be found as cobalt acetate tetrahydrate.The most common form of cobalt ii acetate is the cobalt acetate tetrahydrate and cobalt acetate anhydrous.

Cobalt acetate used as catalyst accelerators for the PTA production, paint drier, feed additive and many others, our range of cobalt acetate is formulated using superior quality raw material. Effective and pure in composition, our range of cobalt acetate finds application in diverse range of industries.

Stored in cool and dry warehouse; Keep away from flame and heat.

The emergency measures?

Skin contact: Take off contaminated clothing and rinse with plenty of running water.
Eye contact: Lift the eyelids and rinse with running water or saline. Seek medical attention.
Inhalation: leave the scene to fresh air immediately. Keep airway open. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial respiration immediately. Seek medical attention.
Ingestion: Drink plenty of warm water, induce vomiting. Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures?

Hazardous characteristics: Combustible in case of open flame and high heat. Its powder can form explosive mixtures in contact with air, and when it reaches a certain concentration, it will explode when it encounters sparks. It can decompose and release toxic gas when exposed to high heat.
Hazardous combustion products: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, cobalt oxide.
Fire extinguishing method: Firefighters must wear gas masks and full-body fire suits, and put out the fire in the upwind direction.
Extinguishing agent: Mist water, foam, dry powder, carbon dioxide, sand.

Spill emergency treatment?

Isolate the leaked contaminated area and restrict access and cut off the fire source. Emergency personnel must wear dust masks and general work clothes. Do not come into direct contact with spilled material.
Small amount of leakage: avoid raising dust, sweep up carefully, collect and transport to waste disposal site for disposal.
Large amount of leakage: collect and recycle or transport to waste disposal site for disposal.

Handling and storage?

Operation precautions: Airtight operation, local exhaust. Prevent dust from being released into the workshop air. Operators must undergo special training and strictly abide by the operating procedures. It is recommended that operators wear self-priming filter dust masks, chemical safety goggles, anti-poison infiltration overalls, and rubber gloves. Keep away from fire and heat sources, and smoking in the workplace is strictly prohibited. Use explosion-proof ventilation systems and equipment. Avoid the generation of dust. Equipped with corresponding types and quantities of fire-fighting equipment and leakage emergency treatment equipment. Empty containers may contain hazardous residues.
Storage precautions: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and heat sources. Keep out of direct sunlight. The packaging is sealed and equipped with fire-fighting equipment of the corresponding variety and quantity. Storage areas should be equipped with suitable materials to contain spills.
