Our potassium bicarbonate (BIKA) improves the agrochemical synthesis and acts as a biological fungicide in ecological farming. KOH solution and potassium carbonate solution are used in liquid complex fertilizers.
Of the alternative sources of energy that are being debated, biodiesel is long established. As an admixture of sodium methylate to fossil diesel in many countries, the green fuel is a trendsetter and has advantages for people, the climate, and the environment.
Dyes and brighteners
Cyanuric chlorides are used in the synthesis of optical brighteners. The bluish fluorescence generated makes the yellow or yellowish substrates appear whiter. Cyanuric chloride is also an important raw material for the production of numerous reactive dyes. The dye is chemically fixed on the fiber. The result is a high-grade, non-fading, colorfast dyeing.
Food, beverages and nutraceuticals
Potassium derivatives are versatile ingredients and additives used in the food, beverage and pharma industry. They act as a leavening and drying agent, color enhancer and source of CO2. They improve the pH-adjustment and reduce the sodium content in your products.
Pharma and Health Care
Physical fitness, good looks and well-being are becoming increasingly important. Our alkoxides can contribute to this new trend in the context of active ingredient synthesis. Potassium derivatives are used in the pharmaceutical industry for synthesis and as active pharmaceutical ingredients, for example as sodium-free effervescent agents or for the treatment of potassium deficiency.
Plastics, rubber and electronics
Alkoxides work as catalysts in polymer applications for food packaging. All TAC and TAICROS® products are highly efficient tri-functional crosslinking additives for peroxide- or electron beam-curing of various materials. The crosslinking process of EVA films is significantly improved by using TAC and TAICROS® as crosslinking additives. Furthermore they are applied in peroxide crosslinking of rubber.
