Water Solutions & Specialty Chemicals (WSSC)

Chemtrade’s WSSC business segment operates an extensive North American plant network, producing both traditional industrial chemicals and customized solutions for our customers. The Water Solutions segment consists primarily of inorganic salts, used as coagulants by municipal and industrial customers to treat water and wastewater. Additionally, the Water Solutions team produces a group of products used by poultry growers, as litter amendments, to control ammonia volatilization and improve bird health and productivity.

Along with coagulants and poultry litter amendments, WSSC produces Specialty Chemicals used in a wide range of industries including the paint (ink, pigment, etc.), oil & gas, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, food & beverage, and tantalum refining industries.

Potassium Hydroxide Pellets

Potassium Hydroxide Pellets

Chemtrade produces high-quality Potassium Hydroxide pellets certified to NF/FCC or ACS standards. We also meet multi-compendiums including EP, BP, and JP, and can certify to other regions as required. Our production facility in Midlothian, Texas, operates under current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) conditions and FDA oversight. Potassium Hydroxide pellets are an ideal solution where pH adjustment or caustic properties are required, yet impurities matter. Chemtrade’s Potassium Hydroxide pellets are widely used in pharmaceutical Soft Gel capsules to enhance the solubility of the API.

Potassium Hydroxide pellets are odourless, white, solid hemispheres of uniform diameter and thickness. Their geometry reduces dusting and caking so the product stores and handles better. They also are deliquescent and typically contain 10-15% water.
