Trisodium phosphate price index

This post is a summary of the Trisodium phosphate developments since 2017. The price developments are expressed as a price index in US$ prices converted at current FX rates, which are the FX rates applicable at the time the price was valid. Trisodium phosphate price index developments are calculated from multiple separate sources of data to ensure statistical accuracy.

What is Trisodium phosphate

Trisodium phosphate (TSP) is a chemical compound with the formula Na3PO4. It is a white, crystalline solid that is highly soluble in water. TSP is a strong alkaline compound and is often used as a cleaning agent, detergent, and degreaser. It is commonly used in the manufacturing of soap, as a food additive, and as a stain remover.

TSP is available in liquid and powder form, and it can be mixed with water to create a cleaning solution. It is important to use caution when handling TSP, as it can be irritating to the skin and eyes and can be harmful if ingested. It is also important to follow safety guidelines and regulations when using TSP, and to use personal protective equipment as needed.


How is Trisodium phosphate produced

Trisodium phosphate (TSP) is produced through a chemical process known as neutralization. This process involves reacting an acid, such as phosphoric acid, with a base, such as sodium hydroxide, to produce a salt. In the case of TSP, the reaction occurs as follows:

H3PO4 + 3NaOH -> Na3PO4 + 3H2O

The reaction is typically carried out in a reactor vessel, and it produces a solution of TSP in water. The solution is then filtered to remove any impurities, and the TSP is recovered by evaporating the water to obtain the final product.

There are several variations of this process that have been developed, and the specific details of the process can vary depending on the specific conditions and materials used. It is important to note that the production of TSP involves the use of hazardous chemicals and should be carried out in a well-ventilated area with appropriate safety measures in place.


What is Trisodium phosphate used for

TSP is effective at removing dirt, grease, and grime from surfaces, and it is often used to clean and prepare surfaces for painting or other treatments. It is also used in the preparation of surfaces for welding and soldering, as it helps to remove oxides and other contaminants that can interfere with the welding process.

Notes on the price-data

  • We aim to update the data series on the 11th and 25th of each month (but we do not always make it for each chart)
  • The data for the current month and recent history are fine-tuned over time.
  • We are continually improving our data collection and processing methods and data will be updated from time to time as we improve the accuracy
  • We are working hard to upgrade the algorithm before April 1, 2023 and a further fine-tune by July 1, 2023
  • This the index trend of the price of the product group in general and not a single specification in particular
  • The source of the data are exclusively public non-confidential sources
  • We combine public publications, import/export records, company announcements, and sources of ad-hoc public information.
  • The chart shows the price trend,  nearly always taken from many statistically-correlated sources 
  • The data is presented in US$. The UOM of measure is shown in the Index list table
  • We do our best to create an accurate representation of the trend
  • Although we believe the price trend to be accurate, we assume no responsibility or liability for any errors or omissions in the content of this site.
  • The information is provided on an “as is” basis with no guarantees of completeness, accuracy, usefulness, fitness for purpose or timeliness.
  • By their nature, outlooks are always uncertain
  • We are working on 500 additional indexes which will be released over time when we are content that it is accurate.
