DUBI CHEM MARINE INTERNATIONAL continues to lead the list of the companies manufacturing CAUSTIC SODA ALSO CALLED SODIUM HYDROXIDE OR LYE in DUBAI, UAE, FUJAIRAH, SHARJAH, OMAN, MUSCAT. CAUSTIC SODA is a versatile, inorganic compound with the formula NaOH. It is a white solid ionic compound consisting of sodium cations Na+ and hydroxide anions OH−.
Sodium hydroxide is a highly caustic base and alkali that decomposes proteins at ordinary ambient temperatures and may cause severe chemical burns. It is highly soluble in water, and readily absorbs moisture and carbon dioxide from the air. CAUSTIC SODA forms a series of hydrates NaOH·nH2O. The monohydrate NaOH·H2O crystallizes from water solutions between 12.3 and 61.8 °C. The commercially available "sodium hydroxide" is often this monohydrate, and published data may refer to it instead of the anhydrous compound. As one of the simplest hydroxides, it is frequently utilized alongside neutral water and acidic hydrochloric acid to demonstrate the pH scale. IT IS A HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE AND HIGHLY REACTIVE.
CAUSTIC SODA is a white crystalline solid and is a major ingredient in drain and oven cleaners.
It is used in chemical manufacturing, oil refining, hydraulic fracturing, water treatment and metal processing.
It is used in the manufacture of fabric, plastic wrap and paper industry.
MOST WIDELY CAUSTIC SODA IS USED IN SOAP MAKING INDUSTRIES.
