This is 100g – 5kg Sodium Carbonate Powder (Soda Ash) supplied in aluminium doypack pouch with resealable zip grip and heat seal or HDPE bucket.
Sodium carbonate’s primary use is in the production of glass. It is combined with sand and calcium carbonate, heated to a very high temperature and then cooled very quickly to make glass.Laundry Detergent
Sodium carbonate is also known as washing soda because it is one of the main ingredients in most laundry detergents. It works as a water softener and it is good at getting grease, oil and alcohol stains out of clothing.Dyeing
Sodium carbonate is also used with some dyes. It helps the dye bond properly with the fibers of the material.Regulating pH
Sodium carbonate is also used to regulate pH. This has many applications. One of them is in swimming pools to adjust the pH levels and make it more alkaline. It is used to develop photographs. It regulates the pH to maintain stable conditions in the mix of chemicals needed to develop the photograph. It is also used in toothpaste to increase mouth pH. It also works as a foaming agent in the toothpaste.Electrolysis
Sodium carbonate also is used as an electrolyte, which helps create chemical reactions with electrodes in a process that involves electrical current and is called electrolysis.
Sodium carbonate is also used in making bricks. It is used as a wetting agent so less water is needed to form the bricks, which reduces the drying time.
