Product Features

Application areas

Carrageen

Carrageenan is a collective term for long-chain carbohydrates to be found in the cells of certain red algae. Carrageenans are used as a gelling and thickening agent for numerous products manufactured by the cosmetics industry, biotechnology and the food industry. In the course of these manufacturing processes, our Potassium Chloride 99% KCl can be used for extracting carrageenans from red algae.

Electrolysis

During the chlor-alkali electrolysis, salt (sodium chloride - NaCl) is separated into its components chlorine and sodium.

The sodium part is further processed in various derivatives, for example as soda lye or caustic soda, as well as sodium hypochlorite. Chlorine is used in many applications. Its largest application area is the manufacture of plastics such as polyvinylchloride (PVC), polycarbonate or as intermediate product isocyanate (MDI) in polyurethane synthesis.

For the highest requirements of the various electrolysis technologies, K+S Minerals and Agriculture GmbH offers a great number of rock and vacuum salt qualities.

Due to its low content of secondary components potassium chloride produced by K+S Minerals and Agriculture GmbH well suited for chlor-alkali electrolysis (classic amalgam and membrane process). It is used successfully in the production of potassium hydroxide all over the world.

Electroplating

Potassium chloride is used as a conducting salt in weaker acidic solutions for electro-galvanizing. This helps to achieve higher voltage, thereby reducing the immersion time of the galvanized parts.

Metal

Potassium salts play an important role in metallurgic processes. Potassium chlorides are used for surface treatment and galvanizing, as hardening and soldering salts, and as smelting salts and drossing fluxes in foundry chemistry.

Industrial rock salts  are essential materials in industrial for the metal processing industry.
