Sodium silicate, usually known as "water glass" or “liquid glass”, is well-known due to wide commercial and industrial application. Sodium Silicate is a non hazardous chemical. Sodium Silicate ranges with different chemical compositions, produced by the fusion of Silica Sand or Quartz with Soda Ash at a temperature of about 1400 C in a Closed End Furnace.
Sodium silicate is a versatile, inorganic chemical made by combining various ratios of sand and soda ash (sodium carbonate) at high temperature This process yields water glass (sodium silicate) in the form of small lumps which is further liquidated in a digester with water to produce Liquid Sodium Silicate. The liquid is filtered and storage ready for dispatch.
