Global Sodium Metasilicate Pentahydrate Market: Overview
Sodium metasilicate which is commonly abbreviated as Metso, is produced through the process of high temperature fusion of silicon dioxide and sodium carbonate. Sodium metasilicate produces highly alkaline solutions when it is dissolved into water. Sodium metasilicatemostly finds it usage as a cleaner component, such as dishwasher detergent and laundry detergent.
Sodium metasilicate pentahydrate is also used widely as builder in detergents and soaps. A builder is a material that maintains or betters the cleaning ability of the surfactant, mainly through inactivation of water hardness. It is used in the production of highly efficient metal cleaners and detergents, wherein sodium metasilicate pentahydrate finds prominent usage. Used as an alternative of sodium triphosphate or STPP, the chemical compound enhances cleaning ability and lessens environmental pollution.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers sodium metasilicate pentahydrate safe for use in boiler water, sanitizing solutions for food-contact surfaces, as washing mixtures for fruits and vegetables, hog scald agent for the hair removal, and denuding agent for tripe. It is also used as a cooling and retort water agent to prevent staining of outer surfaces of canned goods.
