Potassium carbonate (K2CO3) is a translucent and odourless inorganic alkaline solution or a white and odourless solid chemical compound that is available in crystalline granulated or powder form.
K2CO3 is also known as potash carbonate and is used in fertilisers, agrochemicals, heat-resistant glass, soaps, and in the manufacturing of other chemical compounds. Vynova supplies several grades of potassium carbonate to customers worldwide.
Potassium carbonate has historically been used for glass and soap production. Contemporary applications rely on the compound’s key properties, such as its ability to release heat (exothermic), which makes it useful as a deicer. Its water-absorbing properties find applications in the agrochemical industry and in health and beauty products.
Additionally, K2CO3 is used to lower the acidity of wine and serves as a drying agent for fruit processing, as well as in formulations for inks and toners, disinfectants and cleaning products.
