Place of Origin:
►Origin of Borax decahydrate
Borax was first discovered in dry lake beds in Tibet and was imported via the
Silk Road to the Arabian Peninsula in the 8th Century AD.Borax first came into
common use in the late 19th century whenFrancis Marion Smith's Pacific Coast
Borax Company began to market and popularize a large variety of applications.
Borax is a component of many detergents, cosmetics, and enamel glazes. It
is used to make buffer solutions in biochemistry, as a fire retardant, as an anti-
fungal compound, in the manufacture of fiberglass, 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, is
useful as an insecticide.
In artisanal gold mining, the borax method is sometimes used as a substitute
for toxic mercury in the gold extraction process. Borax was reportedly used by
gold miners in parts of the Philippines in the 1900s.
Borax Decahydrate is the refined form of natural sodium borate. Composed of
boric oxide (B2O3), sodium oxide, and water, it is a mild, alkaline salt, white and
crystalline, with excellent buffering and fluxing properties. Available in powder or
Borax Decahydrate is an important multifunctional source of B2O3, particularly
for processes in which the simultaneous presence of sodium is beneficial.
Borax decahydrate , also known as sodium borate, is an important boron
compound, a mineral, and a salt of boric acid.
Powdered borax is white, consisting of soft colorless crystals that dissolve easily
Specification for borax decahydrate powder 95%

Soap and detergents
Borax Decahydrate is incorporated in many cleaning products as a pH
buffering agent, to aid in the emulsification of oils, and as a gentle abrasive.
Borax Decahydrate is added to powdered hand soaps to remove medium to
heavy soils encountered in industrial operations. It is gentle to the skin, yet highly
effective in removing dirt.
Borax Decahydrate is added to formulations to clean hard surfaces such as
metals, glass and ceramics.
It is also used as an additive in hand cleaners, polishes and waxes, and
industrial institutional cleaning compounds.
In laundry detergents it facilitates the removal of oily soils from fabrics, and
imparts alkalinity, pH buffering and softening of the wash water.
It is also used to stabilize enzymes.e is incorporated in many cleaning
products as a pH buffering agent, to aid in the emulsification of oils, and as a
