Sodium Gluconate is composed with many hydroxyl named five hydroxyl sodium acid. molecular fomula: C6H11O7Na,molecular Weight:218.14.exterior is white or brown yellow crystalline powder or granule, easy dissolved water, just slowly solidify it be widely used in construction, wash, food and medicine industry. Along with strong the country construction and high quality, the new development of washing industry. The market demand is very speedy, market appeared a huge potential.
Sodium Gluconate Uses:
Chelate for cement:
fixed amount of sodium gluconate in cement, then make the concrete strong and random. It can be delay the first time and the last time for solidity.
For Medicine Industry:
adjust the body acid-base balance to restore the normal nerve. For the same purpose apply to food additives
Cleaning Agent for Steel Surface:
Before electroplating Bo, Cr, Sn and Ni, the steel surface must be strictly cleaned.Now the sodium gluconate play a very important effect.
Special Cleaning Agent for Glass Bottle:
main ingredient is sodium gluconate, this cleaning agent can improve those problems: can’t remove dirt directly. Block the nozzle and the pipeline. Residue after washing is not ideal edible security, after wash water caused public nuisance.
Sodium gluconate is a white to tan, granular to fine-grained, crystalline powder, which is very soluble in water. Non corrosive, non-toxic and easily biodegradable (98% after 2 days), it has attracted more and more attention as a chelating agent.
The outstanding property of sodium gluconate is its excellent chelating power, especially in alkaline and concentrated alkaline solutions. It forms stable chelates with calcium, iron, copper, aluminium and other heavy metals, and in this respect, it surpasses all other chelating agents, such as EDTA, NTA and related compounds.
Aqueous solutions of sodium gluconate are resistant to oxidation and reduction, even at high temperatures. It is easily biodegradable (the degradation rate is 98% after 2 days), and there is no wastewater problem.
It is a good plasticizer and water reducer for concrete, mortar and gypsum.
And last but not least, it has the property to inhibit bitterness in foodstuffs.
Sodium gluconate can combine well with calcium and other divalent and trivalent metal ions to form chelates.It can prevent scale formation. It is suitable for removing calcium deposits on metal or other surfaces, including milk or beer scaling on tinplate or stainless steel. The chelating properties of are widely used in textile industry to prevent iron deposition and desizing of polyester and polyamide fabrics.
It can be used for alkaline rust removal, wall cleaning and metal carbonate deposits in metallurgy without causing corrosion. It can also be used as a cement admixture to control the setting time, improve the strength and water resistance of cement, and help to manufacture the frost resistance and crack resistance of concrete. Household cleaners, such as mouthwash.
Adding 4% sodium gluconate to feed can reduce weight gain and improve feed utilization. The addition of phosphorus and zinc in feed can improve the retention rate. Diets with and without phytase increased magnesium retention and phosphorus content in tibial ash. A diet containing 2% sodium gluconate without phytase also increased calcium retention.
