Caustic Soda Flakes/Imports
Minimum concentration of 98,5% m/m NaOH
Caustic soda lye is produced using membrane technology, concentrated up to the flake form using steam. The addition of caustic soda to liquid will cause a rise in temperature. If caustic soda becomes concentrated in one area, or is added too rapidly, or is added to hot or cold liquid, a rapid temperature increase can result in dangerous mists or boiling and spattering, which may cause an immediate violent eruption.
