What is Sodium Silica used in

What is Sodium silicate? Sodium silicate, often referred to as paohua alkali is an inorganic material and its aqueous solution, typically referred to as sodium silicate, is a kind of mineral adhesive. Chemical formula: Na2O*nSiO2, it is a soluble silicate inorganic, has a wide range of applications. Sodium silicate soluble in water is colorless and lightly translucent or transparent glass body. It is widely used to fill a fabric, as a fire retardant, and adhesive. What is Sodium Silica used in? Soaps and detergent The sodium silicate is able to improve surface effects, such as wetting with organic surfactants (reducing tension on the surface) and helps to keep small dirt or oil particles suspended in the detergent or helping to get dirt off the surface. The alkalinity that sodium silicate has allows its neutralization against acidic soils as well as enable the emulsification and the dispersion of protein. Packaging As a cardstock coating can enhance the hardness of the paper and improve its resistance to the effects of moisture, fire and pests. Silicate can also be employed as an oil repellent alone. The sodium silicate could be utilized as a lubricant for application of other materials such as paraffin, naphthalene chloride, wax, nitrocellulose, varnish , and other cardboard coatings. It helps to fill the pores on the cardboard and decreases the water absorption of paper, thus reducing the amount of coating required for topcoat. Construction Soluble silicate is a good choice as cement binder. When Portland is combined with cement components, they will undergo chemical reactions to form solid bonds. It can also be used to improve the durability of concrete. Mining industry Soluble Silicate is utilized in numerous mineral enrichment process. The main function of sodium silicate in ore flotation is as an antiflocculant . This is used to remove unwanted siliceous substances. The only requirement is a small amount silicate with a concentration similar as the ones used in cleaning operations is required. The capacity of silicate to create a sodium ion layer on the particle's surface is crucial for preparing the surface for specific separation. Silicate from sodium helps prevent corrosion, which reduces ball wear and tear in mills. Hydraulic treatment Aqueous solution of anionic silica dilute made by soluble silicate is able to hinder the corrosion of a metal surfaces. As an additive in water, dissolved SiO2 may prevent corrosion in storage tanks made of metal as well as distribution lines. It is able to prevent corrosion of pipelines and pumps due to acidic water (for example, from mine drainage) Also, it reduces the possibility of corrosion grinding on ball rods and helps prevent corrosion of processes equipment as an ingredient in agglomeration, spray drying or dry detergent formulations as well as the parts of disheswashing and laundry equipment. It is a component of the liquid that makes up the permanent automotive cooling system. To be used as an additive in water treatment chemicals in cooling towers and boilers.
