Per Container: 2 lbs of Potassium Hydroxide (KOH) shipped in an HDPE container with a resealable child proof cap.

Manufactured by the electrolysis of a potassium chloride (KCI) solution using membrane electrolytic cells (but non mercury based). Chlorine and Hydrogen are formed from the electrolytic production as co-products.

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission tested and approved: KOH, container, cap, label, plastic bag, shipping packaging, and transportation.

If you live on the west coast, to avoid high shipping charges we recommend you take a look at purchasing 10lbs (5 x 2lb containers) of our Potassium Hydroxide which has FREE SHIPPING ------> CLICK HERE.

Please Note: If you want the best value per bottle, including shipping, check out our 32lb (16 x 2lb bottles) and 128 lb (64 x 2 lbs bottles) offerings which give you a much lower price per bottle for the product delivered to your door. And because we only use high quality HDPE containers, with air tight resealable caps, you can keep the product for as long as you wish in the garage (just make sure the caps are tight).

BEFORE HANDLING, it is important that engineering controls are operating and protective equipment requirements and personal hygiene measures are being followed. People working with this chemical should be properly trained regarding its hazards and its safe use.

WHEN HANDLING, refer to the Safety Data Sheet and Product Warning Label and follow all instructions and warnings. The creation and dilution of solutions produces considerable heat and may cause boiling, spattering, or violent eruption. Workers should be properly instructed in dilution procedures and exercise caution. Incompatibilities: Flammable liquids, Water, Acids, halogenated compounds, certain metals including aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, lead, tin, zinc, and their alloys and other alkali sensitive metals. Therefore, containers or tools of those materials are NOT suitable for handling or storing Potassium Hydroxide. Aluminum will quickly corrode generating flammable hydrogen gas. Plastics, such as polyethylene, polypropylene, PVC, and CPVC, can be used (without silica) as they are chemically compatible if you adhere to the plastics maximum temperature limitations.

The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) have established or recommended occupational airborne exposure limits. The established Ceiling Limit should not be exceeded during any part of the working exposure.

STORAGE: Recommend use of the air tight shipping container to minimize any product agglomeration in the package.
