In the textile industry our sodium silicates and metasilicates are used in operations such as cleaning, wool scouring, bleaching and dye fixation.
- Dye fixation: our sodium silicates are used as an alkaline buffering agent to keep reactive dyes stable.
- Bleach stabilisation: peroxides, used for bleaching, degrade under the catalytic influence of metals such as copper, iron and manganese. Adding our sodium silicate inactivates these metals and prevents the reactive oxygen from degrading prematurely.
- Detergency: our sodium metasilicates are particularly suitable to remove light or heavy grease and soil.
Silmaco is a family business with more than 30 years of experience in the production of high-quality and customized silicates. Our flexibility, focus on innovation and quality guarantees your company a carefree service and the most appropriate silicate for your application.
