Your Trusted Specially Denatured Alcohol (SDA) Supplier

Specially Denatured Alcohol is ethyl alcohol that has been modified by the addition of chemicals or denaturants, which prevents the use of an SDA for beverage use but not for specific cosmetic, toiletry, personal care or industrial uses.

Commonly used SDA products:

  • SDA 3A
  • SDA 3C
  • SDA 29
  • SDA 38-B
  • SDA 39-C
  • SDA 40-B

*U.S. Government T.T.B. Industrial User Permit is required to purchase SDA Alcohol

Proprietary Solvents, Special Industrial Solvents and Completely Denatured Alcohol (CDA) are ethyl alcohols that have been modified by the addition of chemicals, or denaturants, prescribed by the T.T.B., which makes the product unfit for human consumption.

  • TYPES: 190 & 200 Proof
  • Approved for Industrial Applications
  • Can be used without obtaining a Use Permit, payment of tax or posting a bond with T.T.B
