Sodium Silicate, also known as liquid glass, is a aqueous solution constituted by SiO2 (silicon dioxide) and Na2O (sodium oxide), and by the variation of the weighted relation between both constituting oxides and the concentration of solids in the solution, it is possible to obtain different grades of sodium silicates, with specific characteristics for each use in the different market segments.

 

Since it is easy to handle, non toxic and non-inflammable, Sodium Silicate is a chemical product with a wide range of application, besides being an important option for replacement in formulas and processes aiming to become more environmentally friendly.
