Our offered Product range includes Borax Pentahydrate and Boric Acid.
Borax, also known as sodium borate, sodium tetraborate, or disodium tetraborate, is an important boron compound. A mineral, and a salt of boric acid. Powdered borax is white, consisting of soft colorless crystals that readily dissolves in water. Our Borax contains greater than 99 percent (%) Sodium Tetraborate Pentahydrate (Na2B4O7…5H2O). There are many applications for Borax. It is part of many detergents, cosmetics, and enamel glazes. It is also used to make buffer solutions in biochemistry, as a fire retardant, as an anti-fungal compound, in the manufacture of fiberglass, as aflux in metallurgy, neutron-capture shields for radioactive sources, a texturing agent in cooking, as a precursor for other boron compounds, and like boric acid, is effective as an insecticide.
Our product contains over 99 percent (%) boric acid (H3BO3). Boric acid, also called hydrogen borate, boracic acid, orthoboric acid and acidum boricum is often used as an antiseptic, insecticide, flame retardant, neutron absorber, or precursor to other chemical compounds. It has the chemical formula H3BO3, and exists in the form of colorless crystals or a white powder that dissolves in water. When it occurs as a mineral in nature, it is called sassolite. Sassolite is a borate mineral, and is the mineral form of boric acid. It occurs in volcanic fumaroles and hot springs, as well as in bedded sedimentary evaporite deposits. Its mineral form was first described in 1800, and was named after Sasso Pisano, Castelnuovo Val di Cecina, Tuscany, Italy where it was found. The mineral may be found in lagoons throughout Tuscany and Sasso Boric Acid is a white, odorless powder. It is not flammable, combustible, or explosive, and it presents no unusual hazard if involved in a fire. Boric Acid presents little or no hazard to humans and has low acute oral and even lower dermal toxicity. Care should be taken to minimize the amount of Boric Acid released to the environment to avoid ecological effects.
