What is Sodium Silica used in
What exactly is Sodium silicate?
Sodium silicate, also known by the name paohua Alkali, is a kind of inorganic substance its aqueous solutions are typically referred to as sodium silicate and is a form of mineral adhesive. Its chemical formula is Na2O*nSiO2, it is a soluble inorganic silicate is a versatile silicate with a multitude of applications. Sodium silicate soluble in water is colorless, slight translucent or transparent glass body, commonly used as fillermaterial, fabric fire retardant and adhesive.
What exactly is Sodium silicate used for?
Soaps and detergents
The silicate of sodium is able to enhance the surface effects including wetting organic surfactants (reducing surface tension) aiding in keeping small oil particles or dirt stuck in the wash or even enhancing the power to eliminate dirt from the surface.
The acidity of sodium silicate allows the neutralization of acidic soils and help in the emulsification and dispersion of oil and dispersal of protein.
As a cardstock coating can enhance the hardness of the material and increase the resistance of it to water fire or grease as well as pests. Silicate can also be employed as an oil repellent by itself.
The sodium silicate is used as a primer for the application of other materials such as paraffin, Naphthalene chloride, wax, nitrocellulose, varnish , and other cardboard coatings. It creates a pore in the cardboard and reduces the water absorption of the material, so reducing the amount topcoat needed.
Soluble Silica can be used as a cement binder. When Portland is combined with cement, the components undergo chemical reactions to make compounds that have strong bonding qualities. It can also be used to improve the strength of concrete.
Soluble silicate is used in many mineral enrichment procedures. The principal use for sodium silicate in ore flotation is as an antiflocculant that helps eliminate unwanted siliceous compounds. The only requirement is a small amount silicate that has a concentration comparable to the concentration used in cleaning operations is required. The capacity of silicate to form a sodium ion layer on the particle's surface can be crucial to prepare the surface for specific separation. Silicate from sodium assists in preventing erosion, and thus reduce ball fatigue in the grinding mill.
Treatment of water
An anionic silica solution that is dilute and provided by soluble silicate can stop the corrosive process of metal surface.
As an additive in water, the dissolved SiO2 helps prevent the corrosion of the metal storage tanks and distribution lines. It prevents the corrosion of pipelines and pumps caused by acidic water (for example, mine drainage); reduces corrosion during ball rod mill grinding; and also reduces the possibility of corrosion in machine components as an ingredient in spray drying, agglomeration or dry mix detergent formulations and also metal parts used in laundry and dishwashing equipment. It is also a component in the liquid in the permanent automobile cooling system. as an additive to water treatment components in cooling towers and boilers.
