Ethanol 70% (140 proof)

BP, EP, JP Grade

140 proof ethanol, or ethanol 70% , is a medical grade alcohol. Our 140 proof ethanol is made by fermenting sugarcane molasses, grain, rice or sugar beet. After fermentation, the ethanol is distilled and rectified to 70% alcohol content. As a bulk supplier of ethanol, Sasma offers various bulk packaging options of this 140 proof ethyl alcohol.

What are the uses of ethanol 70%?

The uses of 140 proof ehtanol include the production of pharmaceuticals and the production of disinfectants. Ethanol 70% is a widely used aseptic for laboratory settings; the comparatively lower alcohol content esnures that the ethanol does not evaporate instantly and thereby disinfects work spaces more thoroughly. This kosher alcohol acts as a solvent or reagent in laboratory use, and is also commonly used for cleaning surfaces or making tinctures. Lastly, this ethyl alcohol is used to dissolve water-insoluble medication.
