What is Sodium Silica used in

What exactly is Sodium silicate? The sodium silicate, which is also known as paohua alkali is an inorganic substance, its aqueous solution is typically referred to as sodium silicate it is a mineral adhesive. Chemical formula: Na2O*nSiO2. It is a liquid inorganic silicate, has a wide range of applications. The sodium silicate, which is soluble in water is colorless and lightly translucent or transparent glass body that is commonly used for filler, fabric fire retardant and adhesive. What are the applications that Sodium Silicate is used in? Soaps and detergent The silicate of sodium is able to enhance the surface effects like wetting the surface with organic surfactants (reducing surface tension) that help to keep small dirt or oil particles stuck in the wash, or helping to clean dirt from the surface. The alkalinity of sodium silicate allows it to counteract acidic soil and encourage the emulsification of oil and the dispersion of protein. Packaging As a cardstock coating may improve the durability of cardboard and enhance your resistance against moisture fire and grease, as well as pests. Silicate can also be used as an oil repellent alone. Sodium silicate can be used as a catalyst for application of auxiliary substances such as paraffin, naphthalene chloride, wax, gum varnish, nitrocellulose and other coatings for cardboard. It helps to fill the pores on the cardboard and minimizes the water absorption of the paper, which reduces the amount of topcoat needed. Construction Soluble silicate may be used as a cement binder. When Portland is combined with cement components, they undergo chemical reaction to produce substances with strong bonding properties. It can also be employed to enhance the strength of concrete. Mining industry Soluble Silicate is employed in a number of mineral enrichment techniques. One of the main uses of sodium silicate in ore flotation is to act as an antiflocculant and eliminate unwanted siliceous compounds. Just a small amount silicate at a concentration similar as the ones used in cleaning operations is required. The ability of silicate to create a sodium ion layer on the surface of the particle is essential in preparing the surface for separation. Sodium silicate helps to prevent the corrosion of the ball, thus reducing wearing in the mill. Water treatment Dilute anionic Silica aqueous solutions that is produced by soluble silicate may prevent the corrosion of the metal surface. As an additive in water, dissolved SiO2 will prevent the corroding of metal storage tanks and distribution lines. It is able to prevent corrosion of pumps and pipelines by acidic water (for instance, from mine drainage); reduces corrosion during grinding on ball rods and also reduces the possibility of corrosion in equipment in process, as an ingredient in spray drying, agglomeration or dry detergent formulations and the metal components in laundry and dishwashing equipment. As a part of the liquid that is used in the permanent auto cooling system. For use as an addition to water treatment components in cooling towers and boilers.
