Silicates are consumed in various industries for their physical & chemical properties according to different applications.
Manufacturing of many industrial elements is based on Welding. To deliver the best quality industrial products, the quality of welded joints has to be perfect, which depends on welding rods and to do so, the manufacturer has to carefully select the welding additives to the composition.
Noble Silicates ranging from high-end lithium based silicates to economical sodium silicates are commonly used in various concrete and finishing applications.
Silicates are inorganic aqueous based liquids, which are widely used as adhesives for its cost effectiveness & convenient application. Odorless, non-flammable and temperature resistance properties make them an obvious choice in many applications.
Silicates in the form of Liquids or solids can be added to cements to accelerate the set. Liquid silicates are used in spray concrete (shotcrete) to provide immediate set.
Acid resistant brickworks & linings are required in many industrial processes. Noble Potassium Silicates are extremely useful binders for these cements as reaction of acid with potassium silicate produces free silica which is resistant to all acids(except hydrofluoric acid) & minimize porosity.
One of the promising application of potassium silicate is to use as activator for high volume fly ash material. According to Prof. Joseph Davidovits, when the silicate is mixed with fly ash or other aluminosilicate material, it forms a cement like strong building material.
Silicon is an essential trace element in numerous plants. One way of providing this product is by using soluble silicates. We recommend the use of Noble potassium silicate, which along with silica provides potassium an essential element for agriculture.
