White crystalline powder
Sodium formate is a white, odorless crystalline powder; soluble in water, sparingly soluble in alcohols, and insoluble in organic solvents.
1. Raw material
Sodium formate chemically reduces other components by donating an electron or electrons. Formic acid and oxalic acid are prepared from sodium formate. Sodium formate is used in the manufacture of sodium hydrosulfite, a common reductive bleaching chemical.
2. Reductive bleaching agent
Sodium formate is used to improve the brightness and color in dyeing/printing fabrics and paper.
3. Tanning of leather
Sodium formate stabilize the chromium, resulting in better leather quality. It is used for better penetration and tanning time reducing
4. Deicing chemical
Sodium formate is less corrosive and undergoes fast melting action relative to other deicing chemicals.
5. Buffering agent
sodium formate improves both desulfurization efficiency and increasing lime absorbent utilization.
6. Animal feed additive
sodium formate is an efficient feed additive as it improve digestibility.
7. Sodium formate is also used in liquid detergent as a builder or an enzyme stabilizer. It is used in dyeing, in electroplating, in silage preservation
