All our ethanol products are denatured. Denatured means that poisons have been added to the ethanol to make it undrinkable. The federal government exempts sales of denatured alcohol from beverage taxes. The poisons are chosen such that they cannot easily be distilled or otherwise removed from the ethanol to make it drinkable.

Ethanol, 70%, laboratory grade, contains ethanol, denaturants, and water. The ethanol includes the denaturants and, therefore, is not pure ethanol. The percentage of denaturants in the ethanol varies, but usually accounts for 7% of the solution.

Ethanol, 95%, laboratory grade, contains ethanol, denaturants, and water. The ethanol includes the denaturants and, therefore, is not pure ethanol. The percentage of denaturants in the ethanol varies, but usually accounts for 10% of the solution.

Laboratory Grade—Intermediate purity. Suitable for educational laboratories. Use for qualitative analysis, not quantitative analysis.
