 ►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.

►Features 

 

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

 

 

 

 ►Application

 

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.
