Simple Solvents 190 Proof USP grade anhydrous ethyl alcohol is among the highest purity ethanol available on the market and is intended for use in industrial processes, including the manufacturing of drugs, foods, supplements, ingredients, and cosmetics. This product is not intended for use in beverage applications.

You must be 21 or over to buy this industrial ethanol product. You must comply with all Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Trade Bureau (TTB), federal, state, and local laws. Simple Solvents may require a copy of your state or federal license, even when purchasing products that require a federal excise tax payment.

This product may be available for purchase without a permit from the TTB. However, some state and local regulations may apply. Because all non-denatured ethanol products are considered ‘taxable alcohol,’ the TTB requires a payment of excise tax of $25.35 per gallon. As directed by law, Simple Solvents applies for the tax payment directly to the appropriate federal government agency.

Health: 2 (Moderate) Materials that, on intense or continued (but not chronic) exposure, could cause temporary incapacitation or possible residual injury, including those requiring the use of respiratory protective equipment that has an independent air supply. These materials are hazardous to health, but areas may be entered freely if personnel are provided with full-face mask self-contained breathing apparatus that provides complete eye protection. Flammability: 3 (Serious) This degree includes Class IB and IC flammable liquids and materials that can be easily ignited under almost all normal temperature conditions. Water may be ineffective in controlling or extinguishing fires in such materials. Instability: 0 (Minimal) This degree includes materials that are normally stable, even under fire exposure conditions, and that do not react with water. Normal fire fighting procedures may be used.
