We are counted as one of the leading manufacturers and exporters of Industrial Chemicals. We offers wide range of fluoride chemicals such as sodium fluoride, potassium fluoride, and cryolites such as synthetic cryolite, potassium cryolite, pharmaceutical organic chemical and intermediates such as bron trifluoride etherate, pharmaceutical inorganic catalysts etc. Our pro Leveraging on our industrial experience and advanced manufacturing facilities, we have been able to deliver best quality chemicals to our clients. We have created large client base due to the premium quality of our chemicals. All our chemicals are provided as per the specifications, detailed by our clients to suit their diverse requirements.
We offer chemicals such as:
Cryolite, or sodium hexafluoroaluminate, is a white free flowing chemical compound which a cube-like crystals consisting of aluminium 3+ cations binding to six fluoride F- anions, forming octahedral AlF63-, and smaller sodium + ions balance the charge to give Na3AlF6, or 3NaF.AlF3.
Most important uses of cryolite is used as with extraction agent of Aluminium metal from its ore Bauxite by electrolyse aluminium. In 1886, both Charles Hall in Ohio, US, and Paul Héroult in Normandy, France, discovered that molten cryolite, with the moderate melting temperature of only 1012°C, easily dissolves aluminium oxide. Thus the Hall-Héroult process was born, still in use today.
The name cryolite stems from the Greek words for cold, "cryo" and stone, "lithos", Cryolite in mineral form was mined in Ivittuu in Greenland. The Ivittuu mine was depleted in 1987 and today only synthetic cryolite is used in the production of aluminium. Most commonly this artificial cryolite is obtained from calcium fluoride, also known as the mineral fluorspar, sodium carbonate and aluminium hydroxide, in a multi step process.
Potassium aluminium fluoride is a complex fluoride salt of potassium and aluminium. It does not have a specific chemical formulae. It is a mixture of following salts:
Potassium Aluminum Fluoride is one of the primary constituent in salt fluxes for metal cleaning, combined with other chloride and sulphate salts such as NaCl . The addition of fluoride aslts enhances the performance of the salt flux. These salt flux help in separation of metals from their oxides and dross and prevents further burning of the molter aluminum, therefore increasing its yield.
When Potassium Aluminum Fluoride is added to a mixture of NaCl and KCl the resulting flux is more fluid. This increased fluidity better covers the exposed molten metal and facilitates the release of metals entrapped in the dross.
Potassium aluminium fluoride is also used directly in magnesium rich aluminium alloys to remove and control of magnesium in the aluminium alloys. It is much safer in this applications where earlier Chlorine gas or HEXACHLOROETHANE were used, these gases cause local health problems and are also responsible for ozone depletion.
Potassium Aluminum Fluoride is also used in the manufacture of grinding wheels (filler/binder) and other abrasive products.
Other common applications of PAF are as additive to roofing shingles, where it acts as an alkaline Ph adjuster and flame retardant. It can also be used as color additive to the coatings for roofing granules.
Glass producers use the PAF for opacification, or to cloud the glass giving it a milky white color.
Sodium Bifluoride is a highly toxic, corrosive chemicals, poisonous. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Keep the product in air tight bags. In case of contact with eyes and skin, wash the affected place with running water.
It finds most application in etching and frosting of glass, and pre treatment of metal surface for electroplating and or electroplating chemical additives. It is also sometimes used as laundry sour for removal of iron stains
Industrial Acid is also know as Hydrogen tetra-fluoborate, tetra-fluoroboric acid and Fluoroboric acid and used for various industrial applications in several industries. Available in various specifications, these can also be customized to suit the diverse requirements of industry. Our range of fluoboric acid includes hydrogen tetra-fluoborate, tetra-fluoroboric, tetrafluoroboric acid and fluoboric acid 50%.
We are one of the major producers of Industrial Cryolite in India. We have specialized equipment to manufacture and cater to the needs for manufacturing 125 MT of synthetic cryolite per month.
It used for various applications such as, as an electrolyte in production of aluminium smelters, used as an active ingredient in flux manufacturing, used in speciality glass industries. It is also used in abrasive grinding wheel manufacturing and speciality concretes. It finds applications in all steel and foundry application apart from manufacturing exothermic sleeves and tundish.
Our cryolite has negligible silica content with very low moisture, around 0.05% at 180 degree C.
