Domains

Functional fluids

ICL’s Fyrquel line of self-extinguishing phosphate ester fluids, which are dictated by fire risk considerations, are used in special hydraulic systems of furnaces for aluminum and steel melting; and for lubricant applications, often used in power plants and hot metal manufacturing. Our phosphate esters are also used as functional additives in industrial and aviation fluids.

Metal treatment

ICL’s phosphoric acid and phosphate specialties play a critical role in metal treatment, a key aspect of the metal industry. The treatment of metal surfaces with phosphoric acid or phosphate salts provides a phosphate coating of insoluble metal phosphate. Phosphate coating solutions can be applied either by spray or immersion, depending on the application and coating weight desired.

Potassium chloride

ICL is a global supplier of potassium chloride, which has many industrial applications, for instance, it is used to  manufacture potassium hydroxide and potassium metal.
