Caustic soda, a basic chemical for all your transformations

Caustic soda, also known as sodium hydroxide, is a highly powerful and versatile base. It is a popular chemical thanks to its high alkalinity, which helps it effectively control pH levels. Its high solubility in water and easy transportation, warehousing, and use also contribute to its widespread use.

FIELDS OF APPLICATION

Caustic soda is used in several fields. One of its main uses is in neutralizing acidic environments, which explains its frequent use in chemical manufacturing.

Since sodium hydroxide is a very powerful base, it is frequently used to capture acidic emanations or gases that can be neutralized with a base.

Caustic soda is also used in the pulp and paper and petroleum industries. It can be used to extract acidic contaminants in order to manufacture higher quality products.

Refining vegetable oils also calls for this product to rid them of free fatty acids that can give oils an unpleasant taste.

Sodium hydroxide is an effective, reliable solution to several problems in almost every industry involved in transforming matter, including water treatment, agri-food, pulp and paper, contaminated soil treatment, chemical manufacturing, and agricultural products.
