Phosphorus Catalysts, Cleaning & Metal Treatment
Versatility in perfection — phosphorus plethora
Clariant is Europe's leading producer of phosphorus pentoxide and polyphosphoric acids. These raw materials are widely used in the production of surfactants as well as organic intermediates for the color, pharmaceutical and vitamins industries. Further applications are cleaning, plasticizing and the usage in specialty synthesis.
Starting from white phosphorus we manufacture inorganic products such as red phosphorus, phosphorus pentoxide and polyphosphoric acids. Our organic phosphorus products include various phosphate esters used for cleaning and plasticizing as well as derivatives of phosphonic and phosphonus acid used for specialty synthesis.
Phosphorus-based plastic manufacturing catalyst are used for production of carbodiimides from isocyanates.
Our products are divided into the following categories: Phosphorus Catalysts, Pyrotechnics, Cleaning and Metal Treatment.
