China has abundant phosphorus resources, accounting for 40% of world phosphate production capacity. Phosphates of potassium are downstream products of phosphorus, including the Potassium Phosphate Tribasic, Potassium Phosphate Monobasic(MKP), Dipotassium Phosphate (DKP) and Tetrapotassium Pyrophosphate (TKPP) in this article.

These products are potassium salts of phosphoric acid produced by the reaction of phosphoric acid with an alkali base and can be sold in technical or food grades.

Potassium Phosphate Tribasic can be used as phosphorus potassium fertilizers and the boiler water softener, and can also be used in medicine and the manufacture of liquid soap, refined gasoline, and high quality paper.

DKP can be used as food additive in imitation dairy creamers, dry powder beverages, mineral supplements, and starter cultures. And can also be used in foods as a buffering agent to improve food texture.

TKPP is used in liquid cleaning products and in potable and industrial water treatment where it acts to prevent corrosion, in metal cleaners and surface treatments, and in the manufacture of latex paints.

MKP is strengthening agent, leavening agent, and fermentation aid in food industry; it’s also used as high-efficiency phosphorus-potassium compound fertilizer in agriculture.
