"Soluble Silicates - Key raw materials with a versatile functionality"

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.
