Phix XIV®

Phix XIV®, our sodium hydroxide substitute, offers a high pH solution without the use of caustics such as sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide or other dangerous chemicals. Phix XIV® is used as a replacement for caustics in a variety of industries including food processing, oil and gas exploration, as well as industrial cleaning.

Advantages of Our Sodium Hydroxide Substitute

Phix XIV® carries a triple-zero HMIS score and is classified as a non-skin irritant and is non-DOT regulated, making it an ideal sodium hydroxide substitute. Phix XIV® is durable and effective at raising pH and cleaning in cold temperatures and is freeze-thaw stable. In addition, when using our sodium hydroxide substitute, the risk of burns from traditional caustics is greatly reduced; equipment damage risk is also minimized.

As a top-of-the-line sodium hydroxide substitute, Phix XIV® is a safe, viable alternative for caustic solution applications, such as neutralizing acid gases in drilling and production fluids, increasing the alkalinity of fluid mixtures, cleaning and degreasing agent and resin regeneration.

For your flexibility, our sodium hydroxide substitute Phix XIV® can be used full strength or diluted with water to replace caustic cleaners
