Product Spotlight


Sodium Hypochlorite (Bleach)

Sodium hypochlorite is a highly cost effective, functional and user friendly source of disinfection, sanitation or oxidation. It is a universally applied basic chemical for numerous applications: municipal water/waste water, food processing, sanitation, household and institutional cleaners, germicides, mold removers, laundry, chemical processing and industrial water / wastewater treatment.

We have the flexibility to develop and produce products based on each customer’s unique needs.


Sodium Hypochlorite (NaOCl) a clear, yellow liquid, a sodium salt of hypochlorous acid and commonly known as bleach, is widely used as a disinfectant, sanitizer and as a bleaching agent.




Caustic Soda (Sodium Hydroxide)

Caustic soda is most commonly manufactured by the electrolysis of sodium chloride brine in either a membrane or diaphragm electrolytic cell. Co-products are chlorine and hydrogen.


Caustic soda (NaOH), also known as sodium hydroxide is a strong, clear to hazy, liquid base. Sodium hydroxide is produced (along with chlorine and hydrogen) via the diaphragm or newer membrane electrolytic process, yielding a high purity caustic soda solution.


Caustic Soda is used in many industries as a strong chemical base in the manufacture of pulp and paper, alumina, refineries, textiles, water treatment, chemical intermediates, soaps and detergents.

Product Grades

  • Diaphragm – Standard grade caustic
  • Membrane – High purity, low salt caustic





Hydrochloric Acid

Hydrochloric acid is used in a wide variety of industrial applications. Some of the more common applications include: steel pickling, oil well acidizing, food processing, bio-fuels production, calcium chloride production, ion exchange bed regeneration, and mineral processing.


Hydrochloric acid (HCl) is the aqueous solution of hydrogen chloride gas. It is a strong, corrosive acid, clear to straw yellow in color, derived as a co-product from a variety of chlorination reactions or by burning chlorine with hydrogen.

Hydrochloric acid is produced in solutions up to 38% HCl (concentrated grade), most commonly 31% or 35% depending on application and freight considerations. Solutions for household purposes, mostly cleaning, are typically 10% to 12%, with strong recommendations to dilute before use.

Product Grades

  • 20° BE (31.45%) Food Grade or Technical Grade
  • 22° BE (35.21%) Food Grade or Technical Grade
