Industrial grade granular alkali is a solid alkaline compound, chemically known as sodium hydroxide (NaOH), also known as caustic soda or caustic soda. Compared with ordinary soda ash, industrial grade granular alkali is usually in the form of granules or small balls, which is easier to store and use. It is an important industrial raw material widely used in fields such as chemical, pharmaceutical, metallurgical, textile, and papermaking.
Industrial grade granular alkali is prepared by electrolysis of pure alkali aqueous solution, usually sold in solid powder or particle form. It has a purity of over 99% and is commonly used in the manufacturing of cleaning agents, fertilizers, dyes, catalysts, synthetic fibers, metal treatments, etc.
Due to industrial grade granular alkali being a corrosive compound, safety measures must be taken during use, such as wearing gloves, goggles, and protective clothing. In addition, industrial grade granular alkali needs to be stored in a dry, ventilated, and cool place, and isolated from organic matter, acidic substances, and oxidants.
Overall, industrial grade granular alkali is an important industrial raw material widely used in various fields. Although it is corrosive, as long as attention is paid to safe use and storage, it can play an important role.
