Altiras Chemicals is your supplier for bulk Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH). Sodium Hydroxide, commonly known as caustic soda or lye, is used across a wide range of industries. Its chemical formula, NaOH, signifies its composition of one sodium (Na) atom, one oxygen (O) atom, and one hydrogen (H) atom. Its strong base properties make this powerful alkaline compound a key ingredient in numerous industrial processes.

Industrial Uses of Sodium Hydroxide:

The industrial applications of Sodium Hydroxide include:

  1. Pulp and Paper Industry: used to break down lignin in wood fibers through a process called pulping. This separation of fibers is for producing paper and paper products.
  2. Chemical Manufacturing: used in the production of chemicals, including detergents, soaps, and various organic compounds. Industries utilize it in the manufacturing of synthetic textiles and plastics.
  3. Water Treatment:  Municipal water treatment facilities use Sodium Hydroxide to adjust pH levels and neutralize acidic compounds in water, ensuring safe and potable drinking water for communities.
  4. Aluminum Production: used to extract alumina from bauxite ore through a process known as the Bayer process.
  5. Petroleum Refining: helps remove impurities and contaminants from crude oil during the refining process
  6. Soap and Detergent Production: The saponification process, which involves the conversion of fats and oils into soap, relies on Sodium Hydroxide as a key reactant.
  7. Textile Industry: used in various stages of textile processing, including mercerization, a process that enhances the luster, strength, and absorbency of cotton fibers.

These are just a few examples of the many applications of Sodium Hydroxide across industries. Altiras Chemicals meets the demands of these diverse applications, ensuring that industries can continue to operate efficiently and effectively.
