Description

Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) is solid flakes in white color that also known as caustic soda. NaOH is an inorganic compound. It is an ionic compound consisting of sodium. Furthermore it is a highly caustic base and alkali,that decomposes proteins at ordinary ambient temperatures and may cause severe chemical burns. Therefore sodium hydroxide uses in many industries like chemical manufacturing, petroleum refining, cleaning compounds, drain cleaners. Caustic Soda Flakes, specially appears as White or nearly white pellets, flakes, sticks, fused masses. In addition,Lye is clear or slightly turbid, colorless or slightly colored, strongly caustic and hygroscopic and when exposed to the air they absorb carbon dioxide (CO2), forming sodium carbonate. Sodium hydroxide is formed from sodium sulfate by a three step operation comprising converting the sodium sulfate to sodium sulfide, converting the sodium sulfide to sodium bicarbonate, and converting the sodium bicarbonate to sodium hydroxide.
