CAS: 10124-56-8 Formula: (NaPO3)6
Product Class Phosphates
Miscible in water but insoluble in organic solvents. It possesses sequestring, dispersing, and deflocculating properties and precipitates proteins. In very low concentration, it inhibits corrosion of steel and prevents the precipitation of slightly soluble, scale-forming compounds such as calcium carbonate and calcium sulfate.
Softening water without precipitate formation, as in dyeing, laundering, textile processing, and washing operations; corrosion inhibitor in deicing salt preparations; frozen desserts; pretanning hides in the manufacture of leather; dispersing clays and pigments; threshold treatment for scale; and corrosion prevention.
