Its high reactivity makes handling aluminum chloride a difficult task. Even brief exposure to air leads to compromised product quality.

Through longstanding experience in handling aluminum chloride we can guarantee a constant, high product quality. We use a filling system which was specifically designed for refilling and repackaging aluminum chloride so we can eliminate product contamination and guarantee high product quality.

Distribution for BASF SE

On July 1st 2008 a business partnership with BASF SE was established for the distribution of anhydrous aluminum chloride delivered in drums. This partnership guarantees an improved delivery service with the usual high product and packaging quality.

Product description

Pale yellow to grey crystalline substance. Extremely hygroscopic. Formation of hydrochloric acid gas even in slightly humid conditions (e.g. air moisture).
