Potassium Hydroxide Liquid

Potassium Hydroxide Liquid is a clear, colorless solution with strong alkaline properties. Chemically, it is highly caustic and reactive, readily absorbing carbon dioxide from the air. Potassium hydroxide (KOH) in liquid form is highly soluble in water and exothermically forms a strongly alkaline solution. It is also soluble in ethanol and reacts with acids to produce potassium salts.

What is Potassium Hydroxide Liquid?

Potassium Hydroxide Liquid, also known as caustic potash solution, is a concentrated aqueous solution of potassium hydroxide (KOH), typically available in concentrations such as 45% and 50%. It is widely used in industrial applications for producing potassium-based chemicals, fertilizers, and soaps, as well as in water treatment for pH adjustment and as an electrolyte in alkaline batteries. Its strong alkaline properties, ease of handling, and precise dosing make it essential for various chemical processes.

1500kg IBC Drums


These containers, known as Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC), are specifically designed for storing and transporting Potassium Hydroxide Liquid. IBC containers are typically made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), which has excellent chemical resistance, effectively preventing corrosion from the Potassium Hydroxide solution.


The external metal frame, made of galvanized steel or stainless steel, provides additional mechanical strength, ensuring the stability and safety of the containers during handling and transportation.


The standard capacity of an IBC container is usually 1000 liters (approximately 1 ton), and its modular design makes it easy to stack and store, saving space and transportation costs. These containers are also equipped with sealed lids and bottom discharge valves, making them convenient to operate and use, and ensuring that there are no leaks during transportation.


Our Potassium Hydroxide Liquid is available at a concentration of 48%. This concentration ensures effective use in a variety of industrial applications while maintaining stability and ease of handling.

We offer flexible shipping and packaging solutions to meet your needs:

  • Packaging: Available in various sizes, including drums, IBC totes, and bulk containers.
  • Shipping: We comply with all regulatory requirements for the safe transportation of hazardous materials. Our logistics team ensures timely and secure delivery to your location, domestically and internationally.

Safety is paramount when handling Potassium Hydroxide Liquid. Key safety measures include:

  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Always wear appropriate PPE, including gloves, goggles, and protective clothing.
  • Ventilation: Ensure proper ventilation to avoid inhaling fumes.
  • Emergency Procedures: Have eyewash stations and safety showers readily available. In case of contact with skin or eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
