Sodium hydroxide or Caustic Soda Flakes Type
The caustic soda is widely used in industrial processes.
It constitutes an essential reactant in the production of many useful organic chemicals (more than 30 % of caustic production goes into this application).
Inorganic chemicals like paints, glass and ceramics and uses in fuel cell production and cosmetics are also very important.
The paper, pulp and cellulose industries are major users of caustic soda.
Other areas where caustic is essential are: the food industry, water treatment (for the flocculation of heavy metals and acidity control), the soaps and detergents sectors, the textile sector (as a bleaching agent), mineral oils (preparation of greases and fuel additives) and the synthesis of the synthetic fibre rayon
