Product Description

Formic Acid 

Backed with talented workforce, we have marked a unique position in this domain and have become a leading manufacturer and exporter of Formic Acid. These are a form of carboxylic acid and have the chemical formula  (HCO2H) or (HCOOH). Offered chemicals act as an vital intermediate in chemical synthesis and can be used as  an antibacterial agent. Furthermore, after their formulation, quality inspectors test these chemicals on parameters of purity & quality. Moreover, our clients can get Formic Acid in varied packaging options, according to their requirements and at very affordable prices.

Special Attractions:

  • These chemicals can be used as a preservative & have longer shelf life
  • Offered chemicals  can be applied on fresh hay, for the fermentation of lactic acid and butyric acid formation can be stopped  
  • These chemicals help in quicker fermentation and minimizing the loss of nutritional value 
  • Moreover, our chemicals are used in preserving the winter feed of the animals, as these acids stops the decaying process, hence the feed retains its nutritive value for a longer time
