USP Grade - Potassium bicarbonate meets both the U.S.Pharmacopoeia and FDA chemical standards for use in drug prod-ucts.
ACS Grade - Potassium bicarbonate meets the chemical requiremenset by the American Chemical Society for reagent quality chemicals.
Technical Grade - Potassium bicarbonate is designed to meet therequirements of technical grade applications with a flow aid. Theflow aid, magnesium oxide, absorbs moisture leaving the potassium bicarbonate free-flowing. If a food grade flow aid is requiredcontact Technical Service.

Potassium Bicarbonate Application:

Agriculture – Soilst The absorption of potassiumby soils is enhanced by the
bicarbonatet Reduces the loss of cations inacidic or neutral soils andincreases the action of phos-phate fertilizerst Corrects soil pH, reduces acidity.

Feed---When used as a nutritionalsupplement, potassium bicar-bonate is reported to give increased feed consumptionand weight gain in livestock

Catalyst--- Polymerization of syntheticfiberst Dehydrogenation of olefins
