Alum for pulp and paper applications
We produce alum via the aluminum trihydrate process (ATH) in zero-emission (aka “green”) facilities. Our plants have a small footprint with no by-products or waste streams – no need for on-site or off-site chemical waste collection or disposal. All of our facilities are NSF certified, to the NSF/ANSI Standard 60 (Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals – Health Effects). Learn more about our new Prattville, AL facility, which provides bulk alum for Alabama paper mills.
Our customers appreciate the high quality and consistency of our products, which include these alum grades:
- Low iron
- Iron free
Whatever your pulp and paper application, Affinity Chemical can provide alum to meet its required specs. Learn more on our Product page and download product specs and safety data sheets.
