1. In agriculture
① Koh Potassium Hydroxide is used to readjust soil pH.
② Made use of in the production of fertilizers to offer potassium for plants, especially those plants that can not tolerate chloride ions. ③ For herbicides as well as fungicides, as a mixture of phosphorous acid (a non-pesticide substance) and Koh Potassium Hydroxide, it can be regularly splashed to avoid pests and also diseases, and crops treated this way have virtually no pesticide deposits.
2. In the chemical sector
① Koh Potassium Hydroxide is mainly made use of as basic material for potassium salt production, such as potassium permanganate, potassium carbonate, potassium aluminate, laurate, formate, gluconate, etc ② Used to readjust the pH of chemical remedies, valuable reagents in chemical evaluation, such as in acid titrations (to aid establish focus levels). ③ It can also advertise drying, so it can be utilized as a desiccant to remove wetness in alkaline solvents, specifically amines as well as pyridines.
3. Chemistry laboratory
The Koh Potassium Hydroxide test helps find fungal infections on the skin as well as additionally aids in examining insect anatomy as it increases the procedure of breaking down soft tissues.
4. Petrochemical sector
① In the refining of oil and also gas, Koh Potassium Hydroxide assists to get rid of organic acids and also sulfur substances. ② When creating biodiesel from oil, it serves as a driver. ③ The co2, sulfur trioxide as well as nitrogen trioxide in the gas stream are absorbed with the help of potassium hydroxide.
5. Cosmetics sector
① Koh Potassium Hydroxide is made use of in the manufacture of nail items due to the fact that it assists to cleanse the nails and also liquify the follicle; ② It is made use of in cutting products to assist with hair removal; ③ The raw material for the production of creams, hair shampoos, hair sprays as well as various other cosmetics, generally made use of as pH regulator and also pH regulator. ③ Not only denture cleansers, but oven cleaners, driveway as well as concrete cleansers likewise include potassium hydroxide.
6. Food sector
① Koh Potassium Hydroxide is used to soften olives; ② It is a common artificial additive used to make sodas, chocolate and also chocolate, etc; ③ It can be made use of as a thickener as well as stabilizer for foods such as ice cream; ④ It additionally assists to make more crispy Baked food, can be added to food as a preservative; ⑤ utilized to produce tinted caramel; ⑥ made use of for cleaning and also chemical peeling of fruits and vegetables; ⑦ assists to prolong the service life of food.
7. Pharmaceutical and medical sector
① For the production of potassium borohydride, spironolactone, saparinol, testosterone propionate, and so on; ② for the damage of calf bone horn; ③ for the dissolution of warts and also follicle.
8. In the textile market: it is made use of as a lightening agent, as well as is widely utilized as the major raw material for the manufacture of man-made fibers and also polyester fibers.
9. In the color sector: made use of in the manufacturing of vat dyes, such as barrel blue RSN, and so on 10. In the natural leather market: Potassium hydroxide plays an important role in getting rid of hair from pet hides and also is present in natural leather tanning chemicals.
11. Cleansing items
Saponification of fats with Koh Potassium Hydroxide can be utilized to produce potassium soaps. While soaps made with sodium hydroxide are more usual, potassium soaps are softer as well as more soluble than these soaps. As a result, they include more detergent than liquefied sodium soap. This is why liquid soaps are potassium soaps and solid soaps are sodium soaps. Potassium hydroxide exists in non-phosphate detergents. Used in items for unclogging drains pipes as well as pipes.
12. In batteries and gas cells
① Battery: Potassium hydroxide dissolved in water is made use of as an electrolyte in alkaline batteries, nickel-cadmium batteries as well as manganese-zinc dioxide batteries; ② Fuel cell: As a gas cell electrolyte, Koh Potassium Hydroxide solution contrasted to sodium hydroxide solution far better electrical conductivity.
13. The pulp and paper sectors call for Koh Potassium Hydroxide, which helps different lignin from cellulose fibers as well as aids get rid of foam from paper manufacturing.
14. In various sectors, Koh Potassium Hydroxide is utilized to eliminate oil or oil from metals.
15. Additionally used in the manufacture of published circuit boards.
