CAIROX® Potassium Permanganate

CAIROX® Potassium Permanganate, our global brand of potassium permanganate, is a versatile oxidant used to treat drinking water, wastewater, industrial process chemicals, plus numerous other applications.

All potassium permanganates do not meet the consistent quality of CAIROX® potassium permanganate nor do they always meet the AWWA B603 requirements for assay, flowability, and fine particulates.

CAIROX® potassium permanganate ACS (American Chemical Society) Reagent Grade is recommended where the highest potassium permanganate purity is required. Typical reagent grade applications include laboratories and electronics.

CAIROX® potassium permanganate Free-Flowing Grade is recommended where potassium permanganate is subjected to high humidity conditions and where the material is to be dry fed through a chemical feeder or stored in a bin or hopper.

CAIROX® potassium permanganate Technical Grade is recommended where potassium permanganate is fed as a solution and where particle size is not critical.
