Chemical use is widespread in the healthcare sector, from cleaning and sterilisation to anaesthetics and laboratory chemicals, to production of toothpastes and deodorants. It’s a large and sophisticated industry with rapidly developing technologies and a constant need for products.
The chemicals we supply for use in this sector include:
Demineralised water, also called demin or deionised water, is used in a wide variety of industrial, commercial and manufacturing applications, including the pharmaceutical, automotive and engineering industries. Routinely used within the beverage industry, it can also be used during the production of cosmetics or as a wash water.
Used as an oxidiser, bleaching agent and antiseptic, hydrogen peroxide has many industrial applications as well as within many cleaning products. Commonly used within the paper and pulp industry, it is also utilised by food producers as a flour bleaching agent, as a propellant in the aeronautical industry, and the cosmetic industry.
Chemical formula H3PO4– a colourless, odourless solution
Also known as orthophosphoric acid, phosphoric acid is used in a wide range of products such as agricultural feed and fertilisers, soft drinks, dyes and soaps. It can also be used in dentistry and cosmetics. The food industry uses it to sharpen tastes in sugar-based food products and to act as a preservative as it slows bacterial and mould growth.
Chemical formula Aln(OH)mCl3n-m – a colourless, odourless solution
Used within a wide range of industrial applications such as the treatment of potable and waste water, it enhances flocculation and coagulation. Utilised for personal care products such as deodorants and antiperspirants, and in the production of cosmetics, as well as in the paper and pulp industry.
