What is Sodium Silica used in

What is Sodium silicate? Sodium silicateis commonly referred to as paohua alkali, is a kind of inorganic substance and its aqueous solution, more commonly referred by the name sodium silicate, is a kind of mineral adhesive. Their chemical formula is: Na2O*nSiO2. It is a water-soluble inorganic silicate is a versatile silicate with a multitude of applications. The sodium silicate is water-soluble, is colorless, slightly transparent or translucent glass body. It is typically used as a filler for fabric, fire retardant, and adhesive. What is Sodium Silica employed in? Soaps and detergent Silicates of sodium are able to enhance the surface effects such as wetting with organic surfactants (reducing tension on the surface) and helps to keep small particles of dirt or oil suspended in the detergent or improving the capacity to clean dirt from the surface. The salt's alkalinity enables it to counteract acidic soils as well as aid in the emulsification process of oil as well as the dispersion of proteins. Packaging Sodium silicate as a cardboard coating can increase the strength of the cardboard , and also increase durability to moist fire or pests. Silicate is also employed as an oil repellent by itself. Sodium silicate can be used as a base for the application of auxiliary materials like paraffins, naphthalene chloride, wax, gum varnish, nitrocellulose, and other cardboard coatings. It can be used to fill the pores in the cardboard and helps reduce the water absorption in the paper so reducing the amount topcoat needed. Construction Soluble Silica can be used as cement binder. When Portland is combined with cement components, they undergo chemical reactions to create substances that have strong bonding characteristics. It is also used to improve the durability of concrete. Mining industry Soluble silicate is employed in many mineral enrichment procedures. The main use of sodium silicate in ore flotation is as an antiflocculant . It helps get rid of unwanted siliceous elements. It is only a tiny amount of silicate in a quantity similar as the ones used in cleaning operations is required. The capacity of silicate to create a sodium ion layer on the particle surface is vital in preparing the surface for specific separation. Sodium silicate helps to prevent corrosion, which reduces ball wear and tear in mills. Treatment of water Dilute anionic silica in aqueous solution provided by soluble silicate can slow the process of corrosion on metal surface. As an additive in water, the dissolved SiO2 prevents corrosion of metal storage tanks and distribution lines. It decreases the risk of corrosion on pumps and pipelines by acidic water (for example, mine drainage) Also, it reduces the possibility of corrosion grinding of ball rods; and can prevent the corrosion of processing equipment, which is an ingredient in spray drying, agglomeration or dry mixed detergent formulations; and the metal components in laundry and dishwashing equipment. It is a component of the liquid used in the permanent automotive cooling system. as an additive to water treatment chemicals in boilers and cooling towers.
