Sodium Carbonate Fine Powder - Soda Ash Light 99.3% Pure
What is Sodium Carbonate?
Sodium Carbonate is a sodium salt of carbonic acid and occurs naturally in the burnt ashes if many plants. Sodium Carbonate is a strong alkali and forms a strong alkali solution when dissolved in water, this makes it very useful in industry and is used for many industrial processes today. Sodium Carbonate is commonly known as Soda Ash, Washing Soda or Soda Crystals.
Sodium Carbonate Properties.
Sodium Carbonate is a white crystalline powder at room temperature; its melts at 851 C and boils at 1633 C. Sodium Carbonate is odourless and dissolves in water at a rate of 215g/Litre. It remains stable under normal storage conditions and is generally safe to use. Sodium Carbonate (anhydrous) has a density of 2.54 g/cm3 and has a molar mass of 105.98.
How to Use It.
Laundry Water Softener.
Sodium Carbonate softens water by preventing heavy metals from binding to it or the laundry detergent. It's also very effective at removing oil and grease from clothes.
Sodium Carbonate can be used to de-scale boilers and kettles.
You can make a cleaning solution by mixing Sodium Carbonate and table salt in hot water. Add some aluminium foil and the silver article to be cleaned to the solution and immerse fully. The outer coating of the foil is removed by the solution and an electrolytic cell is produced. The resulting H+ ions reduce the sulphide ions that have built up on the silver and restoring its finish.
