Oxone® potassium monopersulfate (KMPS) chemistry may be used in applications involving metal extraction, separation from ores or waste, hydrometallurgy, and surface treatment of metals or metal alloys. KMPS may be used in both direct and indirect oxidation techniques. Materials that find application are destruction of cyanides and oxidation of chromium, copper sulfide, chalcopyrite, cobalt, nickel, and manganese.
KMPS chemistries can also be used in non-ferrous metal finishing applications: etching or microetching surfaces to reduce thickness, remove oxidation, or pre-clean before bonding or plating. Additionally, KMPS finds application in vibratory finishing techniques.
