Caustic soda flakes (technical sodium hydroxide flakes) – flake mass of white color, very hygroscopic, very soluble in water and alcohol. The formula is NaOH. Technical sodium hydroxide flakes are obtained by evaporating of liquid caustic soda А grade.
Caustic Soda Flakes is a flexible fundamental synthetic with an extensive variety of mechanical applications. It is exceedingly insolvable is water and is for all the insoluble in most natural solvents with exception of alcohols. Caustic Soda Flakes is available in the form of lye (solution in water), as strong and as pieces. Caustic Soda Flakes is an inorganic concoction compound having a place with the gathering of the most grounded alkalies, it is profoundly hygroscopic and solvent in water and alcohols.
The global caustic soda market was valued at 78,833.08 kilotons in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 5.15% during the forecast period (2018 - 2023). The market is mainly driven by the growing demand from the chemicals industry, the rising demand for alumina in the automotive industry, and the increasing demand for paper and paperboards. On the flipside, energy-intensive production process is expected to hinder market growth.
The global caustic soda market is segmented as the type, application and region. On the basis of type, caustic soda market is segmented as lye, flake and others. On the basis of application, market is segmented as inorganic chemical, organic chemical, alumina, soap & detergents, pulp & paper, water treatment, textiles, dye & ink and others. Based on the region, the market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa.
