Potassium Persulphate is used in organic chemistry as an oxidizing agent . It is used in active pharma manufacturing, hair bleaching, wool bleaching, chemical synthesis and accelerated curing of low formaldehyde adhesives. Calibre’s Potassium Persulphate is also used in depolymerization in the modification of starch, in cosmetics and as a gel breaker in the oil and gas industry.
This salt is used to initiate polymerization of many alkenes leading to polymers such as styrene-butadiene rubber and polytetrafluoroethylene and related materials. Potassium Persulphate is environmentally friendly, non-halogenated compound which can be used to oxidize the wet strength resin for reprocessing of broken, or off-spec paper to be recycled.
