What is commonly known as sodium silicate

What is Sodium silicate?
Sodium silicate (chemical formula: Na2SiO3), commonly known as sodium silicate and glass glue, is a colourless and transparent viscous solid or powdery object. Its aqueous solution, commonly known as sodium silicate, is a mineral binder.
Its chemical formula is R2O·nSiO2, where R2O is alkali metal oxide, and N is the molar ratio of silica to alkali metal oxide, which is called the molar number of water glass. Water glass commonly used in buildings is an aqueous solution of sodium silicate.
Colourless biconical crystals or white to off-white blocks or powders. Weathering. 6 molecules of crystal water were lost at 100. Soluble in water, dilute sodium hydroxide solution, insoluble in ethanol and acid. The melting point is 1088. Low toxicity, LD50 (rats, oral) 1280mg/kg (without crystal water)

Main applications of Sodium silicate
Commonly known as sodium silicate water glass, it is widely used in almost all sectors of the national economy. In the chemical system, it is used to manufacture silica gel, white carbon black, zeolite molecular sieve, sodium metasilicate pentahydrate, silica sol, layered silicon, instant powdered sodium silicate, potassium sodium silicate and other silicate products, which are the basic raw materials of silicon compounds. In economically developed countries, there are more than 50 kinds of deep-processing products with sodium silicate as raw material, some of which have been applied in high-tech, sophisticated and sophisticated fields; In light industry, it is an indispensable raw material for washing powder, soap and other detergents, as well as a water softener and settling aid. Used in the textile industry for dyeing, bleaching and sizing; Widely used in casting, grinding wheel manufacturing and metal preservatives in the machinery industry; In the construction industry, it is used to manufacture quick-drying cement, acid-resistant cement waterproof oil, soil curing agent, refractory materials, etc. Silicon fertilizer can be made in agriculture; In addition, it can be used as a silica-alumina catalyst for petroleum catalytic cracking, filler for soap, adhesive for corrugated paper, high-temperature resistant materials such as laboratory crucibles, metal preservatives, water softeners, detergent additives, refractory materials and ceramic raw materials, bleaching, dyeing and sizing of textiles, mineral dressing, waterproofing, plugging, wood fire prevention, food preservation and adhesive preparation.

Chemical properties of Sodium silicate
Sodium silicate is an inorganic substance. As long as it avoids the acid gas of carbon dioxide, it can exist stably and will not change, so its chemical properties are relatively stable. Sodium silicate can be used for the synthesis of materials such as glass and ceramics, and it is also used in other chemical industries.
Acid is weaker than carbonic acid, so sodium silicate can react with hydrochloric acid, carbonic acid and other acids to produce silicic acid.

Price of Sodium silicate
Sodium silicate particle size and purity will affect the product's price, and the purchase volume can also affect the cost of Sodium silicate. A large amount of large amount will be lower. The price of Sodium silicate can be found on our company's official website.
