pH control

The pH of an aqueous medium serves as a measurement of the strength of its acidic or basic properties. Pure water, for instance, has a pH of 7, and is defined as neutral. At lower pH, the solution is defined as acidic and pH above 7 is defined as basic.

Generally in EPS production processes, the pH must be controlled. Certain Budenheim phosphates act as buffers, enabling the regulation of the pH during the whole reaction process. Due to their high quality and the stability of their chemical and physical composition, Budenheim phosphates are particularly suitable for controlling sensitive EPS polymerisation processes without any undesired side effects.
