Technical Support – Product solutions
High purity - Make sure to use a high purity chemical salt: Jost’s mineral salts are characterised by low levels of vagrant metals (tested using ICP-MS).

Free-flowing - Some chemical salts have a high tendency to agglomerate prior to use, and caking or hardening of inorganic salts causes bottlenecks in your production.  Jost Chemical manufactures free-flowing chemical salts without the use of flow agents. A dry granulation process is used to manufacture free flowing granules which will improve your efficiency.

Jost Chemical's adherence to GMP manufacturing assures that all finished goods are fully traceable "backwards" to the raw materials and "forwards" into the final packaging and ship-to location for every container comprising the production lot.
