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. Potassium carbonate is used in the manufacturing of video glass and other specialty glasses, detergents and cleaners, photographic chemicals, agricultural products, gas purification, rubber additives, dairy industry, polymer catalysts, potassium bicarbonate, cement and textiles.
Anhydrous potassium carbonate can be purchased in 50-pound bags, 25-kilogram bags, drums, super sacks, bulk trucks and bulk rail car quantities. Liquid potassium carbonate is sold in drums, totes, tank trucks and tank cars. Anhydrous potassium carbonate is also sold as a milled product in quantities of 50-pound bag-in-box, drums, or super sacks.
