Sodium hydroxide, caustic soda or in the form of an aqueous solution Soda lye. Strongly reactive base. The store’s offer includes sodium hydroxide in 25 kg bags, on a 1000 kg pallet or in the form of an aqueous solution – 49-51% sodium hydroxide solution – in 25 l / 40 kg canisters, IBC (pallet containers) 1150 kg.
The use of soda lye is found in almost all industries. It is a sodium carrier in the production of surfactants, an auxiliary raw material in the paper industry, the production of synthetic dyes and in water treatment processes. In the food industry, sodium hydroxide is used by butchers, dairies and sugar factories as a disinfectant and cleaner.
Due to its biocidal properties, sodium hydroxide is widely used in animal husbandry for disinfecting hives, poultry houses, piggeries, stables, etc. In the form of soda lye – a three percent aqueous solution – it works well as a preventive measure and planned disinfection of surfaces of livestock and breeding animals .
Caustic soda is also used as the active substance – in the form of a 1-3% aqueous solution – in disinfecting mats for preventive disinfection on the farm, e.g. before entering breeding grounds, on access roads to the feed storage and manure export. As well as in the event of an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease, late blight or other contagious livestock disease.
Caustic soda is widely used in Western European fruit growing as a preventive measure or in the fight against bothersome fungal infections – commonly known as cancer of fruit trees and vines. Dutch experts like Peter Van Arkel recommend the use of 10% caustic soda – an aqueous sodium hydroxide solution – to protect long plugs after winter cutting trees and vines, as well as to fight crayfish on trunks and branches. Sodium hydroxide solution is especially recommended for protecting unpurified wounds.
Warning! Sodium hydroxide is a dangerous substance. Even in solid form, it can irritate the skin, eyes and respiratory tract. When using caustic soda or its aqueous solutions, use appropriate personal protective equipment.
