What exactly is Sodium silicate? Sodium silicate, commonly known as paohua kali, is an inorganic chemical it's aqueous solution often referred to as sodium silicate which is a type of mineral adhesive. Chemical formula: Na2O*nSiO2. It is a soluble , inorganic silicate and has a range of uses. Soluble in water, sodium silicate is colorless, lightly transparent or translucent glass body that is used as filler, fabric fire retardant and adhesive. What exactly is Sodium silicate used for? Soaps and detergent The ability of sodium silicate to enhance the surface effects such as the wetting effect caused by organic surfactants (reducing tension on the surface) that help to keep small dirt or oil particles from being absorbed by the detergent or even enhancing the power to remove dirt from the surface. The salt's alkalinity enables the neutralization of acidic soils as well as help in the emulsification and dispersion of oil and dispersing of protein. Packaging The use of sodium silicate as a coating can increase the strength that the cardboard is made of and also improve durability to moist fire, grease and pests. Silicate is also employed as an oil repellent for its own use. Sodium silicate is a good choice as a lubricant for application of other materials like paraffins, naphthalene chloride, wax, gum or nitrocellulose as well as other coatings for cardboard. It makes the pores smaller on cardboard and reduces the water absorption of the paper decreasing the amount of topcoats needed. Construction Soluble silicate may be used as a cement binder. When Portland is combined with cement components, they will undergo chemical reactions to form substances with strong bonding properties. It can also be used to improve the durability of concrete. Mining industry Soluble silicate is employed in a variety of mineral enrichment processes. The main use of sodium silicate in ore flotation is to act as an antiflocculant and help disperse siliceous material that is not needed. There is a very small amount silicate in a concentration comparable to the concentration used in cleaning operations is required. The ability of silicate to form a sodium ion layer on the particle surface is essential in preparing the surface for specific separation. Silicates from sodium help to stop the corrosion of the ball, thus reducing wear and tear in mills. Hydraulic treatment Dilute anionic silica aqueous solution supplied by soluble silicon can reduce the risk of corrosion on a metal surfaces. As an additive in water, dissolved SiO2 can prevent corrosion of storage tanks of steel and distribution lines. It stops the corrosive effects of pipelines as well as pumps due to acidic water (for instance, mine drainage) and reduces the risk of corrosion during grinding balls in ball rod mills and lessens the chance of corrosion to processing equipment, which is an ingredient in agglomeration, spray drying or dry detergent formulations as well as metal parts of laundry and dishwashing equipment. It is used as a constituent of the liquid used in the permanent automotive cooling system. As an additive to water treatment chemicals in boilers and cooling towers.
