Archem Sodium Carbonate is a white, odorless powder with a strongly alkaline taste. Common applications of sodium carbonate include:
Soda Ash is produced by two main methods, natural production and synthetic production.
In this method, Soda Ash is produced by extracting Trona ore. Then, it is prepared with some separation processes like filtering, crystallization and drying.
Synthetic Soda Ash is produced by Solvay method. Sodium chloride is reacted with calcium carbonate in the presence of ammonia. Soda Ash which is produced in this procedure, is more costly than natural production method.
Storage conditions of ArChem Soda Ash are listed below:
Prolonged inhalation of soda ash dusts may irritate nose, throat, and lungs. Prolonged contact may cause skin irritation. Plus, ingestion may cause nausea, vomiting, stomach ache, and diarrhea.
Some of necessary first-aid measures are described as below:
Operators should wash hands before breaks and after work. they should use personal protective equipment and wear chemical impermeable gloves, when handling soda ash to avoid contact with the body, skin, and eyes.
Soda Ash is used in the manufacturing of glass, detergents, lithium-based batteries, pharmaceuticals, etc.
