Usage areas of Sodium bichromate
Sodium bichromate, which is the main starting material of all chrome chemicals, is easily soluble in water. As the main input in the textile industry and in the production of other chromium chemicals; in the production of chromic acid and chromium pigments in the leather and fur industry; in the chemical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries; in the oxidation of organic compounds; in the production of wood material preservatives; used in petroleum refining.
Sodium dichromate dihydrate can react with reducing agents to generate heat and form gaseous products (causing pressurization of closed vessels). Products can spontaneously carry out further reactions (such as combustion in the air). Reactions can be rapid, but often require initiation (heat, spark, catalyst, addition of a solvent). May react violently with active metals, cyanides, esters, and thiocyanates.
Sodium dichromate liquid solutions are an appropriate and cost-effective method of shipping bulk quantities. Liquids are convenient because the need for manual handling (crystal dissolving) is not required. Liquid sodium dichromate chemicals, therefore, offer a cleaner, safer and healthier working environment and can lower costs due to reduced housekeeping and maintenance requirements.
We have the possibility to produce custom sodium dichromate solutions according to your specific demands and wishes.
Sodium dichromate solution is the perfect alternative for sodium dichromate 2AQ and 0AQ powders which are not available anymore in 25 kg bags.
Product information Sodium Dichromate
Sodium dichromate (VI) has the formula Na2Cr2O7., and is also known as sodium bichromate or bichromate of soda. It is an important starting material for a wide variety of other known chromium compounds (see also other chrome based chemicals)
Safety label information
