Potassium Hydroxide

Vertellus produces high-quality Potassium Hydroxide pellets certified to NF/FCC or ACS standards. We also meet multi-compendiums including EP, BP, and JP, and can certify to other regions as required. Our production facility in Midlothian, Texas, operates under current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) conditions and FDA oversight. Potassium Hydroxide pellets are an ideal solution where pH adjustment or caustic properties are required, yet impurities matter. Our Potassium Hydroxide pellets are widely used in pharmaceutical Soft Gel capsules to enhance the solubility of the API.

Potassium Hydroxide pellets are odorless, white, solid hemispheres of uniform diameter and thickness. Their geometry reduces dusting and caking so the product stores and handles better. They also are deliquescent and typically contain 10-15% water.
