Zacsil E-200 potassium silicate is an ultra pure aqueous solution developed specifically for the electronics industry. It is the highest purity potassium silicate available with very low levels of metals such as Nickel, Copper, Iron and Sodium. Zacsil E-200 potassium silicate is a crystal clear solution with the highest possible level of light transmission and the lowest possible turbidity.

Although developed and targeted for the high purity needs of the electronics industry, Zacsil E-200 potassium silicate should also be the potassium silicate of choice for any process where ultra high purity is desired. Zacsil E-200 potassium silicate is therefore ideal for use as a display or projection phosphor binder, photolithographic applications, high temperature coatings, fuel cell binder and other purity-critical uses.

All Zacsil products are Kosher certified by the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregation of America.
