What is Sodium Silica used in
What's HTML0? Sodium silicate?
Sodium silicate, also known as paohua or paohua alkali an inorganic chemical, its aqueous solution is commonly known as sodium silicate, is a kind of mineral adhesive. Its formula chemically is Na2O*nSiO2, it is a soluble inorganic silicate and has a range of uses. Silicate of sodium that dissolves in water is colorless and lightly colored translucent or transparent massive glass body that is used as a filler, fabric fire retardant, and adhesive.
What are the applications that Sodium Silicate is used in?
Soaps and detergents
The silicate of sodium is able to enhance the surface effects for instance, wetting the surface with organic surfactants (reducing tension on the surface) aiding in keeping small dirt or oil particles suspended in the detergent, and enhancing the ability take dirt off the surface.
The alkalinity of sodium silicate enables its neutralization against acidic soils as well as promote the emulsification of oil and the dispersing of protein.
A cardboard coating can increase the strength of cardboard and enhance its resistance to moisture fire and grease. It also repels pests. Silicate is also used to repel oil for its own use.
The sodium silicate is used as a primer in the application of auxiliary substances including paraffin, NAP chloride, wax as well as nitrocellulose, varnish and other coatings for cardboard. It will fill the pores of cardboard , and also reduces water absorption by the paper and thus reduces the amount coating required for topcoat.
Soluble Silicate can be utilized as cement binder. When Portland is combined with cement components, they will undergo chemical reactions to create compounds with strong bonding capabilities. It is also used to improve the strength of concrete.
Soluble silicate is employed in numerous mineral enrichment processes. The principal use for sodium silicate in flotation of ore is to serve as an antiflocculant in order to remove unwanted siliceous substances. Only a small amount of silicate having a density similar to that used for cleaning processes is needed. Silicate's ability to create a sodium ion layer on the particle surface is important for preparing the surface for specific separation. Silicate helps in the prevention of corrosion, thus reducing ball damage in the mill.
Treatment of water
Dilute anionic silica in aqueous solution provided by soluble silicate can hinder the corrosion of a metal surface.
As an additive in water, the dissolved SiO2 may prevent corrosion in storage tanks of steel and distribution lines. It reduces corrosion of pipelines and pumps due to acidic water (for example, from mine drainage) and reduces the risk of corrosion during grinding balls in ball rod mills and can prevent the corrosion of machine components as an ingredient in agglomeration, spray drying or dry mixed detergent formulations; and parts made of metal in laundry and dishwashing equipment. It is used as a constituent of the liquid in the 'permanent' auto cooling system. As an additive to water treatment components in cooling towers and boilers.
