Caustic soda is an important chemical with wide applications in many industries which known as some other names like sodium hydroxide, lye, caustic and etc in different markets and with have various purities and types in two different shapes liquid and solid is supplying by Basekim company to all over the world. Caustic soda with general chemical formula NaOH is an alkaline chemical and according to its high PH uses in many fields as PH controller or in drilling mud that it is just a part of this chemical usages. Sodium hydroxide up to 99% purity is supporting by our company in different types and specs and exporting to every spot on the world with the best quality and competitive price
Caustic soda usages
Caustic soda in many fields has noticeable usages somehow that the range of it applications is from foodstuffs to chemical making. Lye also is used for aluminum industries, pulping, sewage refinery, rubber bleaching and detergents, water purifying, making tiles, pharmaceutical, ceramics, artificial silks, color making, leather and textiles, cosmetics, glass making, gas and oil industry, batteries, neutralized acids, soft drinks, alcohol making, sugar making, oil industries, polymers, stick industries, disinfectants and lots of other industries which the needed caustic soda is producing by Basekim company and exporting to all over the world.
Caustic soda specification
Caustic soda has wide range of specs which for any usages has separated spec and all of them is supporting by ATDM company, however this chemical has the same items between it different types like the alkalinity property that it PH is about 14 which made this chemical an alkaline agent and PH protector in solutions. Caustic soda with having the good solubility in water in about 111 gr in 100 gr water 20 centigrade degree, made this matter an alternative for some other minerals, also by the special gravity (2.1) more than water causes to sedimentation and finally leads to dissolving in the water. lye as it said has the high water attraction and on the other hand it has the boiling point 1390 centigrade degree and this issue causes to be usable in oil and gas wells drilling and made this chemical as a substance of drilling mud.
Caustic soda flakes
Caustic soda flakes is a highly caustic substance that is used to neutralize acids and make sodium salts. Sodium hydroxide physically is a white crystalline like snow, odorless and solid that absorbs moisture from the air. It is easily soluble in water when dissolved in water or neutralized with acid it liberates substantial heat, which may be sufficient to ignite combustible materials. Sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) is very corrosive. It is generally used as a solid or a 50% solution. Other common names include caustic soda flakes and lye. More than 95% production capacity of chlorine and approximately 100% of the production capacity of cadmium (sodium hydroxide) is based on the hydrolysis of salt water. In this process, a solution of sodium chloride (salt water) is decomposed electrically to elemental chlorine and a solution of sodium hydroxide and elemental hydrogen.a liquid production method using sodium chloride as a raw material is a multiprocessing process today, there are generally three commonly used methods to produce caustic soda flakes
Packing of cuastic soda and sodium hydroxide
There are different kind of packing for industial caustic soda , since caustic soda /sodium hydroxide is chemical product and its imco better to pack in pp bag which is laminated and don’t allow any water to moisture enter the bag , also for transportation and reducing labor charges we can put bags in 1 MT jumbo bag or 1 MT pallets are possible , in case pallet use as packing certificate of fumigation will arrange for pallets .
Food grade caustic soda and sodium hydroxide ship in safe metal container which keep away caustic soda from moisture and humid condition , Hydroxide is hydrophilic which means that it not only attracts moisture and water but it actively absorbs any moisture or water to which it is exposed.
