As a water softener with a relatively low environmental impact and toxicity level, STPP is prime for use in the detergents and cleaning industry. Commercial detergency products account for the majority of STPP consumption.
A non-flammable compound, STPP also holds use across the textile industry as a synthetic leather tanning agent and masking agent. It also holds use in anticaking agents, flame retardants, rubber manufacture, ceramics (for decreasing viscosity) and much more.
• Detergents: The majority of STPP is consumed as a component of commercial detergents.
• Textiles industry: Used as a leather tanning agent and on other materials for flame retardants.
• Recognised as a safe ingredient for food and beverages and therefore is commonly found in food production as E number E451.
