During the manufacture of our liquid potassium hydroxide we also produce chlorine as a by-product. Chlorine has a wide array of end uses including use in the manufacture of PVC, cleaning/bleaching agents, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, odor warning agents and titanium refining for paints and coverings.
You won’t see our name on any of these end-use products. Instead, you will see other brand names that you’ve come to trust and that you’re familiar with. Our role is to reliably contribute to the supply chain that leads to these end-use products that you enjoy and take for granted.
We think we do it well.

The liquid form of our potassium hydroxide can be found in soaps, at municipal water treatment facilities, in deicers used at our airports, in alkaline batteries and in fertilizers, to name a few.
When dried into flake or compressed into briquettes, our potassium hydroxide finds uses in the bio-diesel industry, in the formulation of industrial and institutional cleaners and in the oil and gas industry as purifying agents.
Converted into either liquid or anhydrous potassium carbonates, our product finds its way into photo chemicals, agricultural chemicals, fertilizers, oil and gas drilling fluids, dairy feed supplements, specialty glass, detergents, food and pharmaceuticals.
