Sulfide Ore Reagents: Xanthate Replacement Technology


HOSTAFLOT 7800 is a safer, better alternative to xanthates collectors. 

Due to the hazardous classification of xanthate collectors and difficulties with storage, handling and disposal, sulfide mining companies are facing increasingly difficult xanthate logistics challenges.

Through collaboration with customers, Clariant developed alternatives with high copper flotation performance and safer handling and disposal solution for mines, lowering capital expenditure and providing a longer shelf life than solid xanthate.
