SODIUM SILICATE (Alkaline Glass(SOLID)
Alkaline Glass Details:
Alkaline Sodium Silicate Glass is the same as liquid Material.
Purpose of convert liquid material into solid form is to easy transport facility & to full fill bulk order of material.
When you want to use glass material then you have to boil glass in to boiler with very hot temperature.
Sodium silicate alkaline in lumps form which is easily dissolved in hot water then also liquid content & solid content technical content are same..
Solid phase (thermal process)
2 Na2SO4 + C + 2 SiO2 → 2 Na2SiO3 + 2 SO2 + CO2
