Technical Information
TMS -VHP
ANTIMONY TRIOXIDE
CAS No. [1309644]

TMS -VHP is a very high purity form of antimony trioxide. It is particularly valuable for
applications where low lead, arsenic and acidity are required. It is available as a free flowing
powder and has excellent white color. The processing assures that the level of colored and
conducting particles is minimal and well below the industry standard. This is also reflected in
the typical low level of total iron on TMS-VHP (soluble and insoluble).
TMS-VHP grade is used in specialized glass production, as a chemical intermediate and as a
catalyst. Although the product is normally sold as a dry powder, it is available in wetted grades
or pelletized.
