Polyvinyl Octadecyl Carbamate

Polyvinyl Octadecyl Carbamate provides superior release properties and prevents delamination or tearing when applied to the backing on the side opposite the adhesive. It has been extensively tested and is widely approved for use with pressure sensitive tapes such as polypropylene, polyester, polyethylene, cellophane, duct tapes and other substrates that require unwinding ease.

Properties Suppliers
Polyvinylpyrrolidone

Polyvinylpyrrolidone is a water-soluble polymer made from the monomer N-vinylpyrrolidone. It was used as a blood plasma expander. It is used as a binder in many pharmaceutical tablets. It is also used as additive for batteries, ceramics, fiberglass, inks, inkjet paper and in the chemical-mechanical planarization process, use in aqueous metal quenching, for production of membranes, such as dialysis and water purification filters.

Properties Suppliers
Potassium

Potassium is an alkali metal. Potassium ions are an essential component of plant nutrition and are found in most soil types. They are used as a fertilizer in agriculture, horticulture, and hydroponic culture in the form of chloride, sulfate, or nitrate. The potassium cation is a nutrient necessary for human life and health. Potassium chloride is used as a substitute for table salt by those seeking to reduce sodium intake so as to control hypertension. Vapor of pure potassium is used in several types of magnetometers. It can also be used in reactive distillation.

Properties Suppliers
Potassium Acetate

Potassium acetate is the potassium salt of acetic acid. It can be used as a deicer instead of chloride salts such as calcium chloride or magnesium chloride. In medicine, potassium acetate is used as part of replacement protocols in the treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis because of its ability to break down into bicarbonate and help neutralize the acidotic state. It is used as a food additive as a preservative and acidity regulator.

Properties Suppliers
Potassium Bicarbonate

Potassium bicarbonate is a colorless, odorless, slightly basic, salty substance. It is very rarely found in its natural form, the mineral called kalicinite. The compound is used as a source of carbon dioxide for leavening in baking, extinguishing fire in dry chemical fire extinguishers, acting as a reagent, and a strong buffering agent in medications. It is used as an additive in winemaking and as a base in foods and to regulate pH. It is a common ingredient in club soda, where it is used to soften the effect of effervescence. It is used as a fire suppression agent in some dry chemical fire extinguishers, as the principal component of the Purple-K dry chemical, and in some applications of condensed aerosol fire suppression. It is the only dry chemical fire suppression agent recognized by the National Fire Protection Association for firefighting at airport crash rescue sites. Potassium bicarbonate is an effective fungicide against powdery mildew, allowed for use in organic farming.

Potassium Bromate

Potassium bromate is a bromate of potassium. It is typically used as a flour improver, strengthening the dough and allowing higher rising. It might also be used in the production of malt barley where the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has prescribed certain conditions where it may be used safely, which includes labeling standards for the finished malt barley product. It is a very powerful oxidizer.

Potassium Bromide

Potassium bromide is a salt, widely used as an anticonvulsant and a sedative in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with over-the-counter use extending to 1975 in the United States. Its action is due to the bromide ion. It is presently used as a veterinary drug, as an antiepileptic medication for dogs and cats. Potassium bromide is transparent from the near ultraviolet to long wave infrared wavelengths and it has no significant optical absorption lines in its high transmission region. It is used widely as infrared optical windows and components for general spectroscopy because of its wide spectral range. It is also used as a restrainer in black and white developer formulas. It improves the differentiation between exposed and unexposed crystals of silver halide and thus reduces fog.

Properties Suppliers
Potassium Chlorate

Potassium chlorate is a compound containing potassium, chlorine and oxygen. It is the most common chlorate in industrial use. It was one key ingredient in early firearms percussion caps (primers). Potassium chlorate is often used in high school and college laboratories to generate oxygen gas. It can be used in rocket propellant. Potassium chlorate is used also as a pesticide.

Properties Suppliers
Potassium Chloride

The chemical compound potassium chloride is a metal halide salt composed of potassium and chlorine. White potash, sometimes referred to as soluble potash, is usually higher in analysis and is used primarily for making liquid starter fertilizers. Potassium chloride is used in medicine, scientific applications, food processing and in judicial execution through lethal injection. It occurs naturally as the mineral sylvite and in combination with sodium chloride as sylvinite. It is sometimes used in water as a completion fluid in petroleum and natural gas operations, as well as being an alternative to sodium chloride in household water softener units. Along with sodium chloride and lithium chloride, potassium chloride is used as a flux for the gas welding of aluminium.

Properties Suppliers
Potassium Copper Cyanide

Cuprous Potassium Cyanide is a white crystalline solid. Denser than water.It is an inorganic cyanide. Members of this class that contain heavy metals tend to explosive instability, most of them are capable of violent oxidation under certain condition; fusion of metal cyanides with metal chlorates, perchlorates, nitrates or nitrites can cause violent explosions.
