What are the uses of Sodium Carbonate?
Soda Ash is used as a fluxing agent that helps to lower the melting point of pure silica which reduce the energy consumption for glass production.
Sodium carbonate is used in several cleaning products such as dishwashing soaps and household detergents due to its cleansing agents and ability to cut through grease and molds. It is used to soften water by preventing the calcium and magnesium ions found in hard water. Moreover, it used in toothpaste as an abrasive and foaming agent.
