Re: Muratic Acid : 20 Baume'
It is another way of saying 31% by weight muriatic acid (The standard concentration you get at a pool store). Baume is a measure of specific gravity, or density, of a liquid. The higher the density over plain water, the more more concentrated the acid. As long as we are giving alternate names for things did you know that muriatic acid is commenly called hydrochloric acid (HCl) in scientific circles and muriatic acid is considered an archaic name?
