Textile and Leather
Ammonium chloride is used in the textile and leather industry in dyeing, tanning textile printing and to luster cotton.
Ammonium chloride is used as a flux in preparing metals to be tin coated, galvanized or soldered. It works as a flux by cleaning the surface of workpieces by reacting with the metal oxides at the surface to form a volatile metal chloride. It is sold in blocks at hardware stores for use in cleaning the tip of a soldering iron and can also be included in solder as flux.
Ammonium chloride is used in a ~5% aqueous solution to work on oil wells with clay swelling problems. It is also used as electrolyte in Zinc–carbon batteries. Other uses include in hair shampoo, in the glue that bonds plywood, in cleaning products.
