Storage and handling
Potassium Acetate is hygroscopic. It should be stored and handled
in its original packages or in
Suitable sealed containers and kept in a clean dry place.
Under normal conditions of use potassium Acetate does not present
any undue health hazard.

irrigate with copious quantities of clean water, holding the eye
open if necessary. Obtain medical attention.
Skin contact: Wash with water. Remove contaminated clothing, which
should be washed before reuse.
Ingestion: Wash out mouth with water. Obtain medical attention.
Potassium Acetate presents little fire hazard.
Potassium Acetate is used for the manufacture of antibiotics,
potassium penicillinate, and in solutions for haemodialysis and
peritoneal dialysis. In addition it can be used as a textile
conditioner, a polymerization catalyst and as a catalyst in the
production of polyurethane foams and carbon black. It is also used
as a dehydrating agent, as runway de-icing fluid or drilling fluid
