- Sodium Metasilicate Pentahydrate is
used as a soap builder and detergent ingredient in industrial and
institutional cleaning compounds.
Sodium metasilicate is made by adding
caustic soda to liquid sodium silicate to obtain an equal molar ratio of
sodium oxide (Na2O) to silicon dioxide (SiO2). The resulting
metasilicate liquor is then cooled to crystallize the pentahydrate
product or passed through a dryer to remove water and yield the
- Sodium metasilicates
are white, free-flowing, granular products that feel slippery to the
touch when wet.
These products do not have a distinguishing odor. Sodium metasilicates
are stable at normal temperatures and pressures and are not combustible.
Spills of sodium metasilicate can be very slippery when wet.
- Sodium metasilicates are alkaline,
meaning they have high pH. The pH typically ranges from 12.4 to
12.7. This property makes sodium metasilicate irritating to the skin,
mucous membranes and eyes.
- Sodium metasilicates are used
directly in a wide variety of cleaning applications and as builders in
many soap formulations. When added to soap, metasilicates considerably
enhance detergent action over soap alone.
