Sodium chlorate and hydrogen peroxide are versatile chemicals with other important uses besides pulp bleaching. Sodium chlorate is often employed as a metal surface treatment in the electronics and automotive industries. Hydrogen peroxide is commonly used in water purification and fish farming applications.

Sodium chlorate (Eka SC)

Sodium chlorate is a strong oxidizing agent that is readily soluble in water. It is the preferred intermediate for sodium perchlorate and sodium chlorite manufacture and an effective defoliant/desiccant for agricultural industry applications.
