Description of Potassium chloride

The chemical compound potassium chloride (KCl) is a metal halide salt composed of potassium and chloride. It is odorless and has a white or colorless vitreous crystal appearance. The solid dissolves readily in water and its solutions have a salt-like taste. KCl is used in medicine, scientific applications, food processing, and used to cause cardiac arrest as the third drug in the “three drug cocktail” for executions by lethal injection. It occurs naturally as the mineral sylvite and in combination with sodium chloride as sylvinite.

What is Potassium chloride?

Part I: Introduction

With the progress of science and technology and the development of society, chemical products have invariably permeated our daily lives, in medicine, food, cosmetics, electronics, industry, and other areas, becoming an essential part of our lives. One such product is Potassium chloride which has developed particularly rapidly in recent years. Do you know about Potassium chloride?

The official answer: Potassium chloride is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula KCl. It has the appearance of table salt, is odorless, and has a salty taste. It is commonly used as an additive for low sodium salt and mineral water. Potassium chloride is a common clinical electrolyte balance regulator with precise clinical efficacy and is widely used in various clinical departments.

What’s the application of Potassium chloride?

Mainly used in the inorganic industry, it is the basic raw material for manufacturing various potassium salts or bases such as potassium hydroxide, potassium sulfate, potassium nitrate, potassium chlorate, potassium red alum, etc. The pharmaceutical industry uses it as a diuretic and a drug to prevent and control potassium deficiency. The dye industry is used to produce G-salt, reactive dyes, etc. In agriculture, it is a potassium fertilizer. It is a fast-acting fertilizer and can be applied directly to farmland to raise the moisture in the lower layer of the soil and has a drought-resistant effect. However, it is not suitable for saline land and for crops such as tobacco, sweet potatoes, and sugar beets. Potassium chloride is similar to sodium chloride in taste (bitter) and is also used as an additive to low sodium salt or mineral water. It is also used in the manufacture of the muzzle or gun muzzle deflagrators, as a heat treatment agent for steel, and for photographic purposes. It is also used in medicine, scientific applications, food processing, and table salt where potassium chloride can be partially replaced by sodium chloride to reduce the possibility of high blood pressure.

Peter has been my partner for many years, we met at the Shanghai CPHI Fair in 2014, for the first time I didn't have much interest in Peter's products because our company had a stable supplier. Although we didn't work together, Peter would often send me important news and interesting trend information about the industry, so we became good friends, even though I didn't place any orders with him during this time, even if it was a sample order. In September 2016, our original supplier was unable to provide us with the quality and delivery guarantees we needed, so I first thought of Peter and his company. Until now, we have maintained a very good personal friendship in addition to a steady business relationship.

In all my years of sourcing from China, I first time to found that working with Sincere Chemical was so good, they helped me with all the production and delivery as well as a lot of technical expertise, which saved me a lot of time. When I first approached Peter for a quotation for Optical Brightener, he made me a detailed quotation with not only prices but also foreign trade details, company profile, company strengths, R&D capabilities, production capacity, packaging methods, raw material control, environmental protection, and much more. This information was a very important reference for me in making purchasing decisions. Sincere Chemical is a trustworthy supplier and I believe our business will grow from strength to strength!

Hi, I'm Kim, I'm Peter's partner and although I don't like him very much (because he never gives me more money for my prices, hahaha) I'm still willing to write him customer feedback. As an international buyer, I have to deal with a lot of things every day and my inbox is often full of development letters. It's a lot of junk and meaningless pleasantries, which I don't like that much, but Peter's emails always give me a better understanding of the product and the industry. I am also very pleased with his work ethic, and I am very happy with his work every time I work with him, not only in providing quotations but also in facilitating all the details of my work so that I can concentrate more on other things, so he is the best supplier for me. Although his prices are not the lowest among all suppliers, his products give me the greatest peace of mind.
