Oxone™ PS-16

Also known as KPMS or potassium peroxymonosulfate, Oxone™ is a white granular product that provides non-chlorinated oxidation in a wide variety of applications.  It's safe to use in a production facility, in the environment, and even as a key ingredient in your denture cleaner!

Most notably, the active ingredient allows for efficient non-chlorinated oxidation as a pool shock, allowing less use of sanitizer and leaves the pool clean, clear, and swimmable nearly immediately.  The powerful oxidation as a microetchant in printed circuit boards improves process control in multi-step copper etching with a predictable rate to completion.  KPMS is of particular interest in metal plating and mining as it safely, economically, and conveniently oxidizes cyanide in waste streams.  These key benefits of rapid rate of reaction as well as non-chlorinated oxidation has allowed repulping papers with wet strength resins to move their processes to greener methods without sacrificing production time.
