The global sodium chlorite for pulp application market is expected to display unexpected growth in forthcoming years. Sodium chlorite initial uses was as an industrial agent in its heyday and is an amalgamation of three chemicals namely sodium hydroxide, chlorine dioxide and hydrogen peroxide. Sodium Chlorite is stored naturally in liquid form. Sodium chlorite in its commercial form contains oxidation agents, buffering agents, chlorine dioxide fume controllers and surfactants.
Sodium chlorite is an oxidant ideally suited for bleaching synthetic fibers and operations are conducted under strong acidic conditions. Sodium Chlorite which is an anhydrous powder is actually little hygroscopic and soluble in water. With a chemical formula, NaClO2, it emits toxic and corrosive gas on application of sodium chlorite. Neutral or acidic chemicals are used.
High antimicrobial, bleaching and disinfectant attributes of sodium chlorite is expected to drive demand in the pulp industry. The growth driver for pulp and paper industry is sodium chlorite industry and this is where sodium chlorite finds an increasing need due to chlorine dioxide formation that drives growth for sodium chlorite for pulp application market.
Chlorine dioxide is produced from sodium chlorate on-site and this is used in modern chemical pulp bleaching. A typical growth factor for sodium chlorite for pulp application market is that chlorine dioxide is the fondest bleaching agent available in the ECF chemical pulp bleaching process. Sodium chlorite produced white paper has chlorine dioxide as a bleaching agent for producing paper and straws. Furthermore, sodium chlorite is well-needed in paper recycling process and this drives growth in sodium chlorite for pulp application industry.
A growth factor for sodium chlorite for pulp application market in Asia Pacific is the rising growth in paper and pulp industry in the region. Various small scale and large scale manufacturers contribute to growth of sodium chlorite industry and availability of land, raw material and labor cost coupled with a strong and positive government vision is expected to drive the sodium chlorite market.
