Lithium Hexafluorophosphate (LiPF6), low moisture; high purity


Lithium Hexafluorophosphate and Lithium Tetrafluoborate are the preferred electrolyte salts for lithium batteries. Our highly pure grades of LiPF6 and LiBF4 have the characteristics, that is, low free acid and low insoluble. The bottle is covered with Al-laminated sheet to keep the characteristics.

Contents: 1 kg and 5 kg bottles


3. Material Handling Precautions

Both LiPF6 and LiBF4 should be handled in a dry environment. Local exhaust ventilation should be provided when handling the products in order to control the release of contaminants into the air. These salts are extremely hygroscopic and LiPF6 may evolve volatile fluorides such as POF3 and HF as products of decomposition if allowed to be in contact with moisture.
