KEMAK manufactures a broad range of silicate-based products for the Household and Industrial & Institutional Detergent Industry. KEMAK's silicate-based products provide alkalinity and buffering, water softening, corrosion inhibition, bleach stabilisation, soil/grease dispersion, liquid-carrying capacity and binding or anti-caking properties needed by today's detergent formulations.
How it works
KEMAK soluble silicates contribute to detergents by acting as builders, buffering agents, bleach stabilizers and corrosion inhibitors. Special grades have been developed with a high liquid carrying capacity to enable aborption of liquid ingredients. Silicate powders with a low bulk density can be added to dry mix powders for regulation of the bulk density. A broad range of liquid silicates act as process chemical in a spray drying process to give the detergent powder a good structure.
KEMAK meta silicates are primarily used in the I&I industry. The high alkalinity in metasilicate provides effective cleaning in a wide variety of powder, tablet and liquid detergent formulations. Sodium metasilicates are also excellent buffering agents, stabilize bleach systems and inhibit corrosion.
