Potassium Formate (Solid)

1. General Description
Chinese name: Potassium Formate Solid
English name: potassiumformate solid
Other name(s): formic acid potassium salt
Molecular formula: HCOOK
Molecular weight (MW): 84.11
CAS No.: 590-29-4
EINECS No.: 209-677-9

The potassium formate solid is white, non-toxic and non-corrosive, in density of 1.9100g/cm3, smelling slightly like formic acid. It has reductive ability and can react with strong oxidizing agents. The formic acid potassium salt easily absorbs moisture, and is soluble in water and glycerin, slightly soluble in methanol. Its solubility at 25 ℃ is 310g/100g water. The melting point is 253 ℃. When heated intensely, the potassium formate solid releases hydrogen.

2. Our Advantages
The potassium formate solid produced by us features high purity and stable quality. When used for the preparation of drilling fluid system, it has the advantages of strong inhibitiveability, good compatibility, environmental friendliness, and reservoir protect ability.

3. Properties
Appearance white crystalline granule
Assay ≥ 96.0 %
KOH ≤ 0.5 %
K2CO3 ≤ 0.5 %
KCl ≤ 1.5 %
Moisture ≤ 1.5 %

4. Packaging
The potassium formate solid can be packaged in the following ways:
a) 25Kg / polywoven bag
b) 50Kg / polywoven bag

5. Usage
The potassium formate solid can be used for the following purposes:
a) widely used in oil industry as a high performance drilling fluid, completion fluid, and workover fluid.
b) in snow melt agent industry, because the acetate as additive leaves too strong smell ofacetic acid after melting snow, and causes a certain degree of corrosion to the ground, it is gradually replaced by the potassium formate solid, which has good snow meltingperformance while overcoming all the disadvantages of acetate. The application is praised bythe public and environmentalists;
c) in the leather industry, used as camouflage acid for chrome tanning method;
d) as a reducing agent in printing and dyeing industry;
e) can also be used as a grout hardening accelerator, as well as for mining, electroplating, crop foliage spray, etc.

6. Storage and Handling
Transportation of the potassium formate solid should avoid rain, sun, and mixing with acid or oxidizing sustances. The use of crochet is forbidden, and the handling must be gently done. The chemical should be stored in a dry, ventilated warehouse, separately from alkali and oxidizing substances. Prevent water and moisture.

Our potassium formate (HCOOK) is available in solid and liquid. The potassium formate produced by us features high purity and stable quality. When used for the preparation of drilling fluid system, it has the advantages of strong inhibitive ability, good compatibility, environmental friendliness, and reservoir protect ability.
