Potash Alum, also known as the synthetic version of potassium alum.
Potash alum is a synthetic double sulfate that is chemically synthesized by mixing aluminum hydroxide with potassium sulfate in sulfuric acid. It can also be synthesized by leaching alunite with sulfuric acid or potassium hydroxide.
Commonly referred to as potash alum, it is the synthetic version of natural potassium alum (rock form). Within the chemical and manufacturing industry potash alum is a highly utilized synthetic mineral due to its cheap cost of production and multiple effective applications. Natural potassium alum is a crystalline mineral salt that is ordinarily used in the cosmetic and food industry.
