Hydrogen Chloride (HCl)

Hydrogen chloride (HCl) is a corrosive, flammable, and colorless gas with a piercing, pungent odor used for a variety of manufacturing processes and industrial chemical transformations. Effects of exposure range from mild irritation to severe burns of the skin and eyes. Additional risks include lung and heart issues and can even be fatal in extreme situations. Identifying hazardous levels of HCl is essential for establishing safe working environments and ensuring efficient industrial and manufacturing operations.
