Dipotassium Phosphate


Dipotassium phosphate is a corrosion inhibitor that, along with being used in consumer products, is also an additive to various food products such as non-dairy creamers, where it helps balance the acidity of the coffee. Dipotassium phosphate helps keep contents fresh and prevent the corrosion or rusting of a can, container or dispenser. We know there are concerns about phosphates and their impact on waterways and surface water. However, dipotassium phosphate is used in low concentrations to limit the concentrations of total phosphate being used in SC Johnson products and potentially released to surface waters.
