The global sodium chlorite for textile application market is expected to display rapid 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 textile applications. The demand of sodium chlorite in textile industry is mighty high and is required extensively as a bleaching agent in fabric manufacturing, key component being chlorine dioxide.
Sodium chlorite is very versatile as a textile bleaching agent being very conversant with various colors. Sodium chlorite can be used on cotton, bast fibers and man-made fibers like Nylon, Perlon, Dralon and Rhovyl. Sodium chlorite is good at attacking various colors and destroying colors so that they look stark white.
This whiteness is achieved without bearing heavily on tensile strength of fabrics. The driving factors to growth of sodium chlorite for textile application market are oxidizing properties that do not interfere with fabric quality hence growth of sodium chlorite industry is expected to sustain during forecast period.
Sodium chlorite is a hazardous substance and its discharge into waters is not allowed and going one step further, safe water act protects potable water sources and puts in force water drinking standards. What the act does is local triethalomethanes, chlorates and chlorites and other parameters are selectively reinforced. Segmentation of sodium chlorite for textile application market by application outlook includes disinfectant, antimicrobial agent, bleaching agent and others.
