Sodium Hydroxide Beads (Caustic Soda Beads) are white, hygroscopic, odorless beads that are very corrosive.
Sourced based on market availability: Typically, CORECHEM supplies beads with little to no dust, and an average diameter of approximately 3/4 millimeter. Beads will typically have excellent flow properties, uniform size, excellent blending characteristics, structural strength, high bulk density and low moisture pickup that results in less caking / lumping. Beads produce far less dust than flakes.
For applications requiring liquid caustic, buy Sodium Hydroxide Solution.
Bulk Caustic Soda Beads are used in a variety of applications such as pH adjustment, textiles, personal care, pulp and paper manufacturing, in the production of soap and detergents, as well as in water treatment. Also used in petroleum exploration, chemical production, in manufacturing biodiesel and bioethanol, metal cleaning, and various industrial applications.
Keep only in original container. Wear appropriate protective clothing (PPE) and wash face, hands, and any exposed skin thoroughly after handling.
