Sodium Silicate Solutions

What is it?

Sodium Silicate Solutions (Waterglass) are clear colourless to light brown solutions of Sodium Silicate with varying ratios of SiO2 to Na2O, solids contents, and viscosity. The formulations vary from 2 SiO2:Na2O to 3.2 SiO2:Na2O.

Coogee manufactures a range of silcate solutions to meet the customers’ requirements.

Where is it applied?

Sodium Silicates are versatile, inorganic chemicals that are utilised in a number of applications.

  • Silica Gel - The greatest single use of Sodium Silicates is as raw material for making silica gel, and in the manufacture of catalysts
  • Foundry – Sodium Silicates work well as core binders
  • Mineral processing / Paint / Pigment - As a coating extender
  • Detergent manufacture
  • Mining and construction : as a concrete setting additive
  • Water Treatment – Sodium Silicates act to inhibit corrosion of metal surfaces where industrial water is being stored
  • Silica Gel - Sodium Silicates is as raw material for making silica gel, and in the manufacture of catalysts
