From closing rings in chemicals to improve metalworking and many other industries
Phosphorus compounds can not only be used as flame retardants but also in many other industrial applications. They serve as vital chemicals for making products like pharmaceuticals, vitamins, catalysts and glass. And, in the form of phosphate esters, they can enhance anything from metalworking fluids and industrial cleaners to laundry detergents and paints.
We offer high-quality polyphosphoric acids and phosphorus pentoxide for chemical and other industrial uses, and we turn these compounds into our versatile range of Hordaphos® phosphoric acid esters. In addition, we provide stabilized red phosphorus for pyrotechnics.
Hordaphos® – our multifunctional product range for manifold uses
By varying their chemistries, we have tailored the phosphate esters of our Hordaphos® range to many industrial uses. They can help to cool and lubricate machinery in metalworking while also inhibiting corrosion. And they are strongly acidic yet non-corrosive to metal when fighting scale and organic deposits in mining, food processing and other industries.
With their high adaptability, our Hordaphos® products can also be used for controlling foam and static in detergents or enhancing the dispersion and color strength of pigments. Just tell us the properties you’re looking for – and we’ll surely find a solution.
