Carus Corporation’s AQUOX® Free Flowing Grade potassium permanganate is now Kiwa certified for use in drinking water. The Kiwa certificate declares that both the Carus product and production facility meet Kiwa’s internationally recognized hygienic requirements and quality standards.

The procedure for obtaining an independent Kiwa certificate involved an extensive toxicological product evaluation, based on which the product criteria were set. The product criteria were verified through an inspection of Carus’ production facility and a laboratory examination of the product to test for heavy metal concentrations. Regular, yearly inspections will continue in order to maintain certification and ensure hygienic requirements and quality standards are met.
