Pyongyang, July 14 (KCNA) –The Commercial Technical Preparation Center under the Pyongyang City People’s Committee of the DPRK is registering more and more successes in the research on fluorine compounds.
Recently the center succeeded in making an insecticide for removing cucumber aphid and fluorine ointment (sanitary cream) efficacious for non-specific disease to which women are susceptible with fluorine compounds.
The aphid insecticide is also applicable to various kinds of vegetables. It makes it possible to raise the vegetable production 1.8-2 times.
It shows that fluorine compounds can be used in making insecticide, bactericide and herbicide.
The fluorine ointment is superior to the antibiotic ointment in treatment and prevention effect.
The center had deepened the research on fluorine compounds from the closing years of the 1990s and manufactured kimchi fluorine preservative, its first product, in Juche 90 (2001). Since then, it has made fluorine tooth powder and fluorine water disinfectant. It is now mass-producing them.
Ri Pyong Hwa, director of the center, told KCNA that the center would develop more fluorine compound products and expand their application scope, thus making a positive contribution to the improvement of the people’s living standard.
