Our product is: buffered, non-corrosive acid and labeled as slightly irritating.
This simply means that the hydrogen atoms are arranged in a particular manner, which make it effective as a descaler, however, will not affect protein and can be labeled non-corrosive to steel with a very low skin irritation score. These characteristics along with a very low odor make it unique.
An example and video of our product dissolving the shell of an egg while leaving the protein of the egg still intact, as well as it not affecting our uncovered hands while handling the egg and the product itself.
