Sine 1998, borax chemicals have become the first product list of Yixin company. Borax decahydrate, borax pentahydrate, and boric acid are all added in the product list. Borax, also known as sodium borate, sodium tetraborate, or disodium tetraborate, is an important boron compound, a mineral, and a salt of boric acid.
Borax is a component of many detergents, cosmetics, and enamel glazes. It is used to make buffer solutions in biochemistry, as a fire retardant and also an anti-fungal compound in the manufacturing of fiberglass. Also, it is used as a flux in metallurgy, neutron-capture shields for radioactive sources, a texturing agent in cooking, as a precursor for other boron compounds, and along with its inverse, boric acid, it is useful as an insecticide.
Boric acid, also called hydrogen borate, boracic acid, orthoboric acid, and acidum boricum, is a weak tribasic Lewis acid of boron, which is often used as an antiseptic, insecticide, flame retardant, neutron absorber, or precursor to other chemical compounds. It has the chemical formula H3BO3 (sometimes written B(OH)3) and exists in the form of colorless crystals or a white powder that dissolves in water.
