Alum Production Cost Report

Alum is an inorganic chemical substance that includes aluminium sulfate and another chemical, typically potassium sulfate. It comprises water molecules, aluminium or other metals and sulphates. It is aluminium's hydrated double sulphate salt. It naturally occurs as minerals, for instance, in alunite and leucite. It is available in many types, like potash alum, soda alum, ammonium alum, and chrome alum.

Alum crystals are chemical compounds usually sold as white fitkari, red fitkari or white alum stones and red alum stones. They are odourless, have an astringent and sweet acid taste and appear to be colourless. They usually come in a white crystalline powder form. It is highly soluble in water (particularly in hot water) as the alum crystals are liquified when heat is applied. It has the property of being an anti-inflammatory agent and can lower teeth gum inflammation and pain. It's boiling and melting points are around 200 degrees Celsius and 92.5 degrees Celsius, respectively. It has a density of 1.725 g/cm3.

The Alum demand is being driven by its usage in shrinking tissues, stopping bleeding, as well as boosting the immune response to a vaccine. Furthermore, it finds use in the food industry in the baking and pickling process, as an acidulating agent in cooking, and as an acidic component of baking powder.

It is also used in leather tanning as a drying agent in a textile company. It is also used extensively employed in the coagulation and flocculation process of water treatment. Other products that employ alum as a raw material are a toothpaste, deodorant "rock", flame retardant, some homemade and commercial modelling clay, some depilatory (hair removal) waxes and skin whiteners. Hence, these are all applications boosting its market growth.
