Quad distributes caustic soda solutions that are produced by two technologies: membrane cells and diaphragm cells. Caustic soda goes into a myriad of applications including pulp & Paper, alumina, soaps, detergents, water treatment pretzel production and countless other industrial processes.
Potassium hydroxide has uses from batteries to fertilizers, soaps and hairspray, there are more uses of the chemical potassium hydroxide than most people are aware. As a strong base it help neutralize acid, but it can also be used as a food thickener or stabilizer. It has medicinal properties for both humans and pets, and is the reagent in many industrial processes. While it is more common to use sodium hydroxide for soap, potassium hydroxide soaps are actually more soluble in water and are better for the environment. Potassium hydroxide soaps are also referred to as ‘soft soaps’. As a base, potassium hydroxide acts as a pH regulator in industrial manufacturing and processing. In the agricultural industry, potassium hydroxide is used to regulate the pH of acidic soils.
Hydrofluoric acid is a solution of hydrogen fluoride (HF) in water. It is a precursor to almost all fluorine compounds, including pharmaceuticals such as fluoxetine (Prozac), diverse materials such as PTFE (Teflon), and elemental fluorine itself. It is a colourless solution that is highly corrosive, and is used extensively in the specialty steel industry for pickling or cleaning and passivation of stainless steel and other specialty allow metals.
Quad distributes aqueous hydrochloric acid solution. Hydrochloric acid must be handled with appropriate safety precautions because it is a highly-corrosive liquid. HCl is an important industrial chemical for many applications, including the large-scale production of organic compounds, such as vinyl chloride for PVC plastic, and MDI/TDI for polyurethane.
