What is Sodium silicate?

Sodium Silicate, also referred to as paohua kali, is an inorganic material the aqueous solution of which is often referred to as sodium silicate, is a kind of mineral adhesive. Chemical formula: Na2O*nSiO2, it is a liquid inorganic silicate and has a range of uses. Soluble in water, sodium silicate is colorless. It is slightly transparent or translucent glass body, used primarily to fill a fabric, as a fire retardant and adhesive.

What is Sodium Silica employed in?

Soaps and detergent

Silicates of sodium are able to improve surface effects, such as the wetting effect caused by organic surfactants (reducing tension on the surface), helping to keep small oil particles or dirt trapped in the cleaning solution or even enhancing the power to remove dirt from the surface.

The salt’s alkalinity enables it to neutralize acidic soils as well as encourage the emulsification of oil and the dispersion of protein.


Silicate sodium as a cardboard coating can increase the hardness of cardboard and enhance its resistance to the effects of moisture fire or pests. Silicate can also be used as an oil repellent in its own.

The sodium silicate may be used as a primer to aid in the application of auxiliary substances such as paraffin chloride, wax, gum varnish, nitrocellulose, and other cardboard coatings. It helps to fill the pores on the paper and reduces the water absorption of the paper, and thus reduces the amount topcoats required.


Soluble silicate can be used as a cement binder. When Portland is mixed with cement components, they undergo chemical reactions to make substances that have strong bonding characteristics. It can also be utilized to increase the strength of concrete.

Mining industry

Soluble silicate is used in many mineral enrichment processes. The main use of sodium silicate in flotation of ore is as an antiflocculant . This is used to remove unwanted siliceous substances. Just a small amount silicate having a density similar to that used for cleaning processes is needed. The ability of silicate to create a sodium-ion layer on the particle surface is essential in preparing the surface for separation. Silicate from sodium helps prevent wear and tear, thereby reducing the ball fatigue in the grinding mill.

The treatment of water

The dilute solution of anionic silica created by soluble silicate could reduce the risk of corrosion on a metal surfaces.

As an ingredient in water, dissolved SiO2 is able to prevent the corrosion of storage tanks made of metal as well as distribution lines. It can reduce the corrosion of pipelines as well as pumps due to acidic water (for example, mine drainage) Also, it reduces the possibility of corrosion grinding of ball rods; and also reduces the possibility of corrosion in equipment used in the process as an ingredient in agglomeration, spray drying or dry mixed detergent formulations; as well as metal parts of laundry and dishwashing equipment. As a part of the liquid that makes up the permanent automotive cooling system. as an additive to water treatment components in cooling towers and boilers.
