Light Soda Ash is an important basic industrial alkali chemical used in soap and detergents, pulp and paper, iron and steel, aluminium cleaning compounds, water softening and dyeing, in fiber reactive dyes, effluent treatment and production of chemicals.
Soda ash is most commonly used in:
Manufacture of glass, where it reduces the melting temperature of the sand used in
glass formation and helps in the 'workability' or shaping of glass articles such as tableware and float glass, Making soaps and detergents, where it is employed as a builder, or filler, to give a smoother surface, Production of chemicals such as sodium silicate, sodium bicarbonate and per carbonate, and sodium chromate and dichromate, Pulp and paper manufacture, water treatment, effluent treatment, metallurgy and drugs.
Glass: The glass industry is a large consumer sector of soda ash consumption per ton of glass is 0.2T.
Detergent : It is used as detergent in wool rinsing medicine and tanning.
Printing and dyeing : Printing and Dyeing industry is used as a water softener.
Buffer: As buffering agent, neutralize and dough improver it can be used for pastry and noodle food and can be used appropriately according to production needs
