High purity potassium hydroxide is commonly referred to as caustic potash, potassium ash, etc., and is typically a white powder or a flake solid. Its chemical properties are similar to those of sodium hydroxide. They are extremely alkaline and corrosive. They are very soluble in water and release a lot of heat. They are also prone to deliquescence. They easily absorb moisture and deliquescence from the air. They absorb carbon dioxide into potassium carbonate.
High-purity potassium hydroxide is the basic raw material for the chemical industry and has a wide range of uses.
1. It is used as a desiccant and absorbent for oxalic acid and various potassium salts, and is also used for electroplating, engraving, lithography, and the like.
2, mainly used as raw materials for the production of potassium salts, such as potassium permanganate, potassium carbonate and so on. In the pharmaceutical industry, it is used to produce potassium hydride, spironolactone, sananisone, testosterone propionate, and the like. Used in light industry to produce potassium soap, alkaline batteries, cosmetics (such as cold cream, creams and shampoos). In the dye industry, it is used to produce vat dyes such as reduced blue RSN. In the electrochemical industry, it is used for electroplating, engraving, and the like. In the textile industry, it is used for printing, bleaching and mercerizing, and is widely used as the main raw material for the manufacture of man-made fibers and polyester fibers. In addition, it can also be used for metallurgical heating agents and leather degreasing.
3. Basic chemical raw materials are used in medicine and daily chemical industry.
4. As an absorbent for analytical reagents, saponification reagents, carbon dioxide and water.
5. The daily chemical industry is the raw material for soaping soap, shampoo, shampoo, shampoo and shampoo. The pharmaceutical industry is used to make raw materials such as progesterone and vanillin. The dye industry is used to produce melamine dyes. The battery industry is used to make alkaline batteries.
In addition, potassium hydroxide is also widely used in light industry, dyes, batteries and other industries. Potassium hydroxide is also classified according to the content. Currently, the market is dominated by 90% potassium hydroxide and 95% high purity potassium hydroxide.
