Potassium hydroxide solution (KOH aqueous) is a colourless inorganic liquid that acts as a strong base (alkali). KOH solution is also known as caustic potash or potash lye and has many different applications. During the KOH liquid production process, chlorine and hydrogen are formed as co-products.
Vynova supplies caustic potash liquid in a variety of concentrations, from a standard 45-50% solution to any other concentration upon request. Thanks to our extensive storage capacity and distribution network, we are able to supply the market from numerous strategic locations.
Potassium hydroxide solution has a wide range of applications in a variety of industries, from food, consumer care and pharmaceuticals to agriculture and glass manufacturing. It is also used as an electrolyte in the production of alkaline batteries and to manufacture biodiesel as well as deicers for airport runways.
In addition, KOH lye is an intermediate in the formulation of personal care products such as liquid lotions, soaps and shampoos. As a strong base, it reacts with grease and fats, making it a useful ingredient in drain and oven cleaners as well as in non-phosphate detergents.
Due to its low salt index and high solubility, caustic potash also serves in the manufacture of liquid fertiliser mixtures. KOH liquid is known to increase crop yield and to improve the drought tolerance of crops.
