Persulfates

Key components for many industrial processes

Persulfates are the most chemically active of the peroxygens, with great utility in a variety of chemical processes. Our persulfates, backed by years of experience, are manufactured to strict specifications for thermal stability, making them among the most stable available.

Evonik is a leading global producer of high quality ammonium, sodium and potassium persulfates.

The Klozur® persulfate portfolio consists of several high purity, environmental grade persulfate products used for in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) of contaminants in soil and groundwater.

Sodium persulfate acts as a polymerization initiator in polymer chemistry, as an etchant and cleaner in the manufacturing of printed circuit boards, as a booster in hair bleaching formulations in cosmetics.

Potassium persulfate is used as an initiator for emulsion polymerization reactions, in the preparation of acrylic, vinyl, styrene, neoprene, styrene-butadiene and other resins. It is also used in depolymerization in modification of starch, as a booster in hair bleaching formulations in cosmetics and as a gel breaker in the oil and gas industry.

Ammonium persulfate acts as a polymerization initiator in polymer chemistry, as an etchant and cleaner in the manufacture of printed circuit boards, as a booster in hair bleaching formulations in cosmetics and as a gel breaker in the oil and gas industry.
