Armand Products Company is a joint venture between OxyChem and Church & Dwight Co., Inc. and has been a market leader in the industry since its formation in 1986. The joint venture is one of the world's largest producers of potassium carbonate and potassium bicarbonate and sells its products in the international market through the International Sales Department of OxyChem.

Potassium Carbonate

Potassium carbonate is an inorganic compound important to many industries and its use is as old as recorded history. Centuries ago in Pompeii potassium carbonate was leached from ashes and mixed with slaked lime for soap making. The increase in the use of this alkali paralleled the growth of Western civilization. Today, potassium hydroxide (caustic potash or KOH), produced through the electrolysis of potassium chloride brine, is reacted with carbon dioxide to form potassium carbonate.

OxyChem sells potassium carbonate to export customers outside the United States and Canada. Domestic requirements may be purchased directly from Armand Products Company in less than truckload, full truckload, tank truck and rail car quantities.

Potassium Bicarbonate

Potassium bicarbonate is produced by reacting potassium carbonate with carbon dioxide, then recrystallizing it. All equipment from production to packaging is dedicated solely to potassium bicarbonate.

OxyChem sells potassium bicarbonate in the international market through its International Sales Department. Domestic requirements may be purchased directly from Armand Products Company in less than truckload and truckload quantities.
