Potassium hydroxide, also commonly called caustic potash, is produced in the United States by the electrolysis of potassium chloride brine in electrolytic cells. When potassium chloride brine is fed to the electrolytic cell, the process yields a solution of potassium hydroxide and co-products of chlorine and hydrogen. Potassium hydroxide, or caustic potash, is used in a wide variety of industrial applications

Some of the more popular industrial uses include:

  • Agriculture (Fertilizers and Herbicides)
  • Potassium Carbonate
  • Alkaline Batteries
  • Photo Chemicals
  • Water Treatment
  • Phosphates
  • Potassium Chemicals
  • De-Icing Fluids
  • Soaps and Detergents
  • Oil and Gas Drilling
  • Electroplating
  • Greases
