Lithium Hydroxide monohydrate

Lithium hydroxide monohydrate is a reagent and used in a great variety of lithium compounds and derivatives. In industrial soap greases it acts after reaction as thickener in greases formulations. Lithium complex greases are among the more popular high-temperature grease types because their dropping points are relatively high.

Lithium hydroxide monohydrate can be used in the construction industry for cement to slow down the solidification process. The cause is the high affinity of the very small lithium cations too water molecules.

They tend to have good storage stability, are relatively easy to pump, generally respond well to additives, and provide good water resistance.

Industrial applications

  • Lithium soap greases
  • Lithium complex greases
  • Additive to alkaline battery electrolyte
  • Additive for dyestuffs
  • Fluxing agent in organic pigments
  • Cement paste fluidity enhancer and retarder for the hardening process

Lithium hydroxide monohydrate is available in technical and wet grades.


Shelf Life

Lithium hydroxide monohydrate is stable under normal storage and temperature conditions.

Under proper storage conditions, the shelf life is 24 months.
