Application of Amon Fluoride

  • This substance is commonly called "commercial ammonium fluoride". The word "neutral" is sometimes added to "ammonium fluoride" to represent the neutral salt—[NH4]F vs. the "acid salt" (NH4HF2). The acid salt is usually used in preference to the neutral salt in the etching of glass and related silicates. This property is shared among all soluble fluorides. For this reason it cannot be handled in glass test tubes or apparatus during laboratory work.
  • It is also used for preserving wood, as a mothproofing agent, in printing and dying textiles, and as an antiseptic in breweries.
