Ammonium chloride – called “salmiak” is an inorganic chemical compound from the chloride group. Used in the production of fertilizers and for cleaning metal surfaces. Ammonium chloride is used as a thickener in the production of surfactants. Ammonium chloride is a component in the production of shampoos, shower gels, body cleansers. Salmiak is used for the production of washing powders, batteries and dyeing. In the galvanizing process, ammonium chloride is used to activate the surface of pipes to the effect of metallic zinc in the process of galvanizing, tinning, and dye production. It is often used as a hardener for urea-formaldehyde resins used in the production of adhesives. In industrial production, ammonium chloride is used to make solar panels.
