The commodity chemicals are the products to build up the foundation of the chemical business of ADEKA. As peroxides, we offer mainly products such as hydrogen peroxide based oxidizing and reducing agents, and ammonium persulfate based persulfate salts. In the field of electrolysis and industrial chemicals, our products consist of inorganic chemicals, polypropylene glycols, metal soaps, etc. For both fields, we enjoy a high reputation from our customers by virtue of our long year production record and stable supply.
We started the commercial production of propylene glycol for the first time in Japan. In particular, the cosmetic or fragrance grade DPG-RF has much less smell than the normal grade and therefore can be safely used for the fragrance-free cosmetics.

ADEKA started its peroxygen chemical business in 1959. Since then, we have steadily pushed forward with R&D and now boast an exceptionally wide range of products, including hydrogen peroxides, persulfates, thiourea dioxide, sodium percarbonate, diethylhydroxylamine, etc.
This is used for a wide range of areas, including bleaching, oxidation, chemical synthesis, treatment of metal surfaces, and environmental protection. We supply a variety of peroxides, including sodium percarbonate for cleaning and TEC P (peracetic acid) for disinfection.
We produce high purity hydrogen peroxide used for producing electronic or semiconductor devices and silicon wafers from industrial hydrogen peroxide by the integrated system at our same factory. We ensure the reliable and stable supply of the high purity product under our intensive quality management system.
Persulphates are products used for various applications, including etching agents for printed substrates and soil improvement.
DEHA is used as the polymerization terminator of synthetic rubber.
ADEKA TEC HES (isethionic acid）is a compound containing two functional groups within the molecule, a hydroxyl group and a sulfonate group. Being highly reactive, it can be used for a variety of areas and applications.
Metal Soaps (Efco-Chem)
We produce metal soaps by dry process. The metal soaps produced by dry process are characterized by the absence of soluble salts, formation of particles suitable for improving powder fluidity, easy adjustment of apparent specific gravity, and capability to produce powder, pellet, or flake products.
Main applications: lubricants, mold release agents, pigment dispersants, stabilizers for use of powder metallurgy, ferrite, FRP, PS, coatings for wood work, processing pigments, thermal papers.
Main applications: lubricants, mold release agents, pigment dispersants, stabilizers, water repellents for use of PE, PS, cement, shell molding.
Main applications: mold release agents, pigment dispersants for use of ABS and urea resin.
Main applications: antislipping agents for paper and fiber, precision casting, binder for refractory material, catalyst carrier, and reinforcing material for adhesives and paint.
Sodium Silicate, Sodium Metasilicate
Sodium silicate solution and sodium metasilicate are manufactured from high quality sodium silicate cullet produced by Kanto Sodium Silicate Glass Co., Ltd. situated within the property of ADEKA Kashima Factory.
Main applications are paper and fiber bleaching aids, detergent builders, inorganic paint, flocculation agents, metal cleaning agents, laundry aids, and cleaning aids.
"ADEKA CHLORITARD" is a steel-based acid cleaner that generates less corrosive gas compared to hydrochloric acid. Minimization of corrosive gas generation can improve the working and surrounding environment and prevent facility deterioration due to corrosion. Use of this product can also improve productivity, since it has a stronger acid pickling ability than hydrochloric acid.
When dried, hydroxyl groups on the surface are dehydrated to release water, and the particles become siloxane-bonded to form aggregates. After drying, the silica particles become chemically inert and have heat resistance. When these silica particles remain on a smooth surface, the friction coefficient increases on the surface of the coated material. This product also has a property to change a nonpolar surface to a polar surface, as well as act as a binding material, since these particles have strong bonding force and adhesive strength.
Iron Chloride (Ferrous Chloride Solutions, Ferric Chloride Solutions)
"ADEKA FERRIC CHLORIDE" is a chemical product widely used as a coagulation and sedimentation agent. It is also used as an etching solution for photoengraving and printed circuits.
