May cause perforation of the stomach and ssoda, and the sites of subsequent scarring have been associated with the later development of stomach cancer. May boil explosively if added to hot water. A sodium hydroxide soak solution is used as a powerful degreaser on stainless steel and glass bakeware.

Glass reacts slowly with aqueous sodium czustic solutions at ambient temperatures to form soluble silicates. Chemical engineering Cleaning products Deliquescent substances Desiccants Household chemicals Hydroxides Inorganic compounds Photographic chemicals Sodium compounds Bases chemistry E-number additives.

Place into labeled plastic drum s for later disposal.

May cause severe, deep burns and permanent impairment to, or total loss of, sight. Ly bases attack aluminium. It describes the safety requirements for this product and should not be construed as guaranteeing specific properties. Avoid breathing dusts or aerosols. It is also a common ingredient in oven cleaners. Journal of the Chemical Society, Transactionsvolume 63, pages A common use of sodium hydroxide is in the production of parts washer detergents.

Possibility of hazardous reactions. Electrochemistry Gas cracker Standard electrode potential data page Electrology. Will absorb carbon dioxide from the air, forming a coating of sodium carbonate. All equipment must be earthed. Along with sodium sulfidesodium hydroxide is a key component of the white liquor solution used to separate lignin from cellulose fibers in the kraft process.


Consult an expert regarding disposal of this product. It also hydrolyzes the proteins such as those found in hair which may block water pipes. Touching sodium hydroxide solution with the bare hands, while not recommended, produces a slippery feeling.

ly As with other alkaline solutions, it feels slippery with skin contact due to the process of saponification that occurs between NaOH and natural skin oils. Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing.

This type of reaction with a strong acid releases heat, and hence is exothermic. Despite solubility in propylene glycol it is unlikely to replace water in saponificaction due to propylene glycol primary reaction with fat before reaction between sodium hydroxide and fat.

Occupational exposure limit values. Oxidising agents, acids, acidic materials, caustiv compounds, nitro compounds, organic halides, active metals, wood, paper, glass.

Sodium hydroxide is a popular strong base used in industry. Water and sodium hydroxide detergent-based parts washers are considered to be an environmental improvement over the solvent-based cleaning methods. Give a glass of water to be taken slowly. Food uses of sodium hydroxide include washing or chemical peeling of fruits and vegetableschocolate and cocoa processing, caramel coloring production, poultry scalding, soft drink processing, and thickening ice cream. Italian serial killer Leonarda Cianciulli used this chemical to turn dead bodies into soap.

Sodium hydroxide is sometimes used during water purification to raise the pH of water supplies.

Caustic Soda Lye

Evacuation of stomach should not be doda. This SDS summarises at the date of issue our best knowledge of the health and safety hazard information of the product, and in particular how to safely handle and use the product in the Workplace. Adjacent O layers are held together by hydrogen bonds between water molecules. No adverse health effects are expected, if the product is handled in accordance with this Material Safety Data Sheet and the product label.


Caustif eventually turns the body into a liquid with coffee-like appearance, [31] [32] and the only solid that remains are bone hulls, which could be crushed between one’s fingertips. Sodium hydroxide is a highly caustic base and alkali that decomposes proteins at ordinary ambient temperatures and may cause severe chemical burns.

Check all fittings, valves, reticulation piping and any ancillary equipment for leaks. Inhalation of dusts or concentrated mists may cause damage to the upper respiratory tract and lungs. Longmans, Green, and Co.


A second stable eutectic composition is Contact Poisons Information Centre. Precautions for Safe Handling. Sodium hydroxide is also mildly corrosive to glasswhich can cause damage to glazing or cause ground glass joints to bind. For example, in the petroleum industry, sodium hydroxide is used as an additive in drilling mud to increase alkalinity in bentonite mud systems, to increase the mud viscosityand to neutralize any acid gas such as hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide which may be encountered in the geological formation as drilling progresses.

May cause swelling of the larynx and subsequent suffocation. This helps homogenise cement mixes, preventing segregation of sands and cement, decreases the amount of water required in a mix and increases workability of the cement product, be it mortar, render or concrete.

P Read label before use. May react violently with organic halides. Take up with sand, dirt or vermiculite. Contact with sugars may generate carbon monoxide. A treatise on chemistry applied to the manufacture of soap and candles. The dilution is exothermic – chemical energy is released in the form of heat.
