2. Usage

Adipic acid is a white crystalline compound with the chemical formula C6H10O4. It is primarily used in the production of nylon, specifically nylon 6,6, which is commonly found in textiles, carpets, and automotive parts. Adipic acid acts as a precursor in the synthesis of adiponitrile, which is a key intermediate in the manufacturing of nylon.

Apart from nylon production, adipic acid also finds applications as a food additive. It is used as an acidulant and flavoring agent in food and beverages. It imparts a sour taste and helps to maintain the acidity of certain products.

Adipic acid is also utilized in the production of polyurethanes, which are widely used in the manufacturing of foams, coatings, adhesives, and sealants. It acts as a curing agent and helps in improving the mechanical properties of polyurethane products.

Furthermore, adipic acid is employed in the automotive industry as a coolant additive. It is added to engine coolant formulations to prevent the corrosion of metal parts and enhance the heat transfer efficiency of the cooling system.

Overall, adipic acid has diverse applications in the production of nylon, food and beverages, polyurethanes, and automotive coolants. Its versatile nature and desirable properties make it a crucial component in various industries.

Flammability Rating: 2 - Moderate Reactivity Rating: 0 - None Contact Rating: 2 - Moderate


Storage Color Code: Green (General Storage)




Potential Health Effects





Inhalation of dust may irritate the respiratory tract. May cause coughing and sneezing.


Based on animal data, this material is presumed to be only slightly toxic.

Skin Contact:

May irritate the skin. Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis.

Eye Contact:

Causes moderate eye irritation with redness and pain.

Chronic Exposure:

No information found.

Aggravation of Pre-existing Conditions:

No information found.





  1. First Aid Measures




Remove to fresh air. Get medical attention for any breathing difficulty.


DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Give large quantities of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Call a physician immediately.

Skin Contact:

Remove any contaminated clothing. Wash skin with soap or mild detergent and water for at least

15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists.

Eye Contact:

Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting lower and upper eyelids occasionally. Get medical attention immediately.





  1. Fire Fighting Measures




Flash point: 196C (385F) CC Autoignition temperature: 420C (788F)




Fine dust dispersed in air in sufficient concentrations, and in the presence of an ignition source is a

potential dust explosion hazard. Minimum explosible concentration in air (dust): 10-15 mg/L.

Fire Extinguishing Media:

Water spray, dry chemical, alcohol foam, or carbon dioxide.

Special Information:

In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full facepiece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.





  1. Accidental Release Measures



Remove  all  sources  of  ignition.  Ventilate  area  of  leak  or  spill.  Wear  appropriate  personal protective equipment as specified in Section 8. Spills: Clean up spills in a manner that does not disperse dust into the air. Use non-sparking tools and equipment. Reduce airborne dust and prevent scattering by moistening with water. Pick up spill for recovery or disposal and place in a closed container. US Regulations (CERCLA) require reporting spills and releases to soil, water and air in excess of reportable quantities. The toll free number for the US Coast Guard National Response Center is (800) 424-8802.





  1. Handling and Storage



Keep in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage. Isolate from incompatible substances. Avoid dust formation and control ignition sources. Employ grounding, venting and explosion relief provisions in accord with accepted engineering practices in any process capable of generating dust and/or static electricity. Empty only into inert or non-flammable atmosphere. Emptying contents into a non-inert atmosphere where flammable vapors may be present could cause a flash fire or explosion due to electrostatic discharge.





  1. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection



Airborne Exposure Limits:

- ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV): 5 mg/m3 (TWA)

Ventilation System:

A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures below the Airborne Exposure Limits. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area. Please refer to the ACGIH document, Industrial Ventilation, A Manual of Recommended Practices, most recent edition, for details.

Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved):

If the exposure limit  is exceeded and engineering controls are not feasible, a  full  facepiece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N100 filters) may be worn for up to 50 times the exposure

limit  or  the  maximum  use  concentration  specified  by  the  appropriate  regulatory  agency  or respirator supplier, whichever is lowest. If oil particles (e.g. lubricants, cutting fluids. glycerine, etc.) are present, use a NIOSH type R or P filter. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-facepiece positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator. WARNING: Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres.

Skin Protection:

Rubber gloves and lab coat, apron or coveralls.

Eye Protection:

Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
