    Where are you and what are you going to use it for?

    I can give you an address but it won't do much good if you're in Kilimanjaro. Look for a local chem supply house and pick it up. If you have to have it shipped, count on paying an extra $20 and up for hazardous fees.

    (AAA) - ALWAYS ADD ACID to water. NEVER add water to acid!

    Concentration will depend on your use.

    Depending on the concentration and where you get it, it may be supplied in glass or plastic containers sized anywhere from 500ml to 200L (16.9 ounces to 52.8 gallons). Yes, it is a liquid.

    If Nitric proves too difficult to obtain, just use 10% sulphuric or the correct pickle to activate your pot metal castings. Pickles are a correct mix of acid salts for a particular application. To prolong the life of any pickle or speacialist dip process, always rinse and scrub items that have been bead blasted prior to dipping. If not you are just dumping fine particles of metal and glass bead in the solution.

    I purchased 5L of nitric for $15 Aus from the local chemical supplies agent. It was supplied in a 5L PE container.

    Cheers
