Product Details

     Potassium Fluoride is a white monoclinic crystal or crystalline powder with a salty taste and easy to absorb moisture. Soluble in water, insoluble in ethanol. Its aqueous solution is alkaline and can corrode glass and porcelain. It reacts with acids to release corrosive and irritating hydrofluoric acid, which can corrode glass.

Application: Glass engraving, food antiseptic, electroplating, welding flux, insecticide, absorbent of fluorating agent (absorbing moisture of hydrofluoric acid); raw material for Potassium Bifluoride. Potassium fluoride is widely used in various fields. KF is a raw material for the inorganic fluorine industry and can be widely used in the production of agrochemicals and pharmaceutical intermediates. KF is also used as a metal surface treatment product in the electronics industry. In areas of fluorine deficiency, KF is added to salt as a food additive. In addition, KF can be used in the production of flux products, as well as preservatives, catalysts and water absorbing agents.

Storage: Store with seal hermetically, keeps away from moisture and avoid being exposed to the sun. It has good solubility in water and easily absorbs moisture, so the chemical should be stored in a sealed container. When stored, store it in a closed container in a cool, dry, well ventilated place away from acids and alkalis.

Hazard identification and its first aid measures:

Skin contact: Causes serious irritation and may burn the skin. Can be absorbed through the skin. The effect may not appear immediately.

Eye contact: Causes irritation. May cause extreme irritation to the eye tissue that may burn and may cause permanent eye damage.

Inhalation: May cause respiratory irritation and burns. May be absorbed by inhaling dust. Stimulation and burning effects may not occur immediately.

Ingestion: May cause salivation, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain, followed by weakness, tremors, shallow breathing, convulsions, paralysis and coma. May cause damage to the brain and kidneys. Death can be caused by respiratory paralysis. Affect the heart and circulatory system.

Chronic exposure: Chronic exposure may cause tooth spots and bone damage (osteogenesis) and fluorosis. Symptoms of fluoride include brittle bone, weight loss, anemia, calcified ligaments, general ill health and joint stiffness.

Deterioration of the original disease: The population with an increased risk of fluoride is an individual with diabetes insipidus or some form of kidney damage.

Packing: Net 25kg bags.
