A free-flowing Lithium Hydroxide that is ultra-purified and contains a minimum of 57% active ingredient. Lithium Hydroxide Monohydrate Purified offers reduced levels of CaO, NaOH, and Mg that make it suitable for use in the production of electrolyte salts and additives, and other specialty applications.
Lithium hydroxide is an inorganic compound soluble in water and slightly soluble in ethanol and is available commercially in the monohydrate form (LiOH.H2O), which is considered a strong base. Lithium hydroxides are used for a variety of applications, including lithium-ion batteries, lithium greases, dyes, resins, coatings, water treatment, and many other specialty chemicals.

Energy storage: Lithium hydroxide has allowed the development of high-energy-density, nickel‐rich battery technologies that drive the electric vehicle revolution. It is used for the production of both cathode‐active materials and electrolyte systems.
Greases: Lithium hydroxide is used to produce fatty acid‐based thickener systems that offer excellent stability, higher water resistance than sodium‐based greases, and better high‐temperature resistance than calcium‐based greases.
Dyes, colorants, and inks: Lithium hydroxide increases the brilliance and luminosity of certain pigments and as a fluxing agent in inorganic pigments and glazes. It is also used in the production of colorimetric analytical reagents often used in pH, water quality, and chlorine content tests. In inkjet technology, lithium hydroxide prevents the development of acidic (low pH) conditions during storage, which adversely affects both the viscosity of the ink and the printer's internal components.
Protective coatings: Lithium hydroxide is used in corrosion‐resistant paints and coatings combined with silicates for enhanced adhesion, extended durability, and excellent chemical resistance. In aluminum alloys for aerospace, lithium hydroxide allows low temperature and short time sealing when used in protective anodized coatings. It also provides self‐healing properties to organic coating systems.
Water Treatment: Lithium hydroxide is used in cooling water systems for corrosion protection.
Fine and specialty chemicals: Lithium hydroxide is used in the production of specialized resins and polymers for the food and protective clothing industries. Lithium hydroxide is also used to manufacture glazing sealants, adhesives, and mastics and the production of agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, flavorings, fragrances, and esterification reactions.
Carbon dioxide scrubbing: Lithium hydroxide has been used for many years as a very efficient absorber of carbon dioxide, in medical applications, underground, underwater, and space applications. Its low molecular weight makes it capable of absorbing approximately 90% of its weight.
