Potassium Hydroxide Flakes

Potassium Hydroxide Flakes,  are white, crystalline solids with strong alkaline properties. They are highly hygroscopic, absorbing moisture and carbon dioxide from the air. Potassium hydroxide (KOH) is highly soluble in water, releasing heat and forming a strongly alkaline solution. It is also soluble in ethanol and reacts with acids to form potassium salts.

What is Potassium Hydroxide Flakes ?

Potassium Hydroxide Flakes, also known as caustic potash, are a high-purity, white, crystalline form of potassium hydroxide (KOH) that is highly soluble in water, generating significant heat upon dissolution. These flakes are essential in various industrial applications, including chemical manufacturing for producing potassium compounds, the soap and detergent industry for liquid soaps and detergents, and as an electrolyte in alkaline batteries. Additionally, they are used in agriculture for fertilizer formulations, pharmaceuticals for pH regulation, and food processing as a pH control agent and thickening agent. Their high reactivity and alkaline properties make them a crucial component across these sectors.
