 ►Origin of Borax Decahydrate

  sodium tetraborate 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 intocommon 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 substitutefor toxic mercury in


the gold extraction process. Borax was reportedly used by gold miners in parts of


the Philippines in the 1900s.


 ►Product description  


       Sodium tetraborate 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


granular form.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 in water.

Borax Decahydrate is chemically stable under normal storage conditions. It will


slowly lose water of crystallisation if exposed to a warm, dry atmosphere.


Conversely, exposure to a humid atmosphere can cause recrystallisation at particle


contact points, resulting in caking. When storing the product, care should therefore


be taken to avoid wide fluctuations in temperature and humidity, and to ensure that


the packaging is not damaged.


Dissolved in water, Borax Decahydrate hydrolyzes to give a mildly alkaline solution.


It is thus capable of neutralizing acids. It also combines with strong alkalis to form


compounds of lower pH. The relatively constant pH of Borax Decahydrate solutions


makes it an excellent buffering agent






Personal care products

Borax Decahydrate is used in cosmetics, toiletries and pharmaceuticals. In contact


lens solutions, it is used in conjunction with boric acid as a gentle cleaner and


buffering agent. Borax is also used as a crosslinking agent to emulsify waxes and


other paraffins used as a base for lotions, creams and ointments.

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.
