Properties of Soda Ash
- Soda Ash is a white, anhydrous, powdered or granular material containing more than 99% sodium carbonate.
- It is hygroscopic in nature and forms a strong alkaline water solution.
- It decomposes on heating at high temperature. Anhydrous sodium carbonate loses weight when heated due to dissociation and volatilization.
- Sodium carbonate occurs in three hydrate forms such as sodium carbonate monohydrate, heptahydrate and decahydrate.
- It is an alkali solution that has a high pH in concentrated solutions.
- Sodium carbonate is readily soluble in water.
Soda Ash Light has a numerous industrial applications such as Soap and Detergent, chemical, food, and other industries
