Sodium Hydroxide Production Cost Analysis 2020

Sodium hydroxide is an inorganic compound, which is also known as lye or caustic soda. In appearance, it is a white solid ionic compound consisting of sodium cations or Na+ and hydroxide anions or OH−. It is a crystalline solid that melts at 318 °C or 604 °F without decomposition and boils at 388 °C or 2,530 °F. 

Sodium hydroxide is composed of a highly caustic base and an alkali, which decomposes proteins at ordinary ambient temperatures. It is highly miscible in water and readily absorbs moisture and carbon dioxide from the air. However, it is insoluble in ether and other non-polar solvents.

Sodium hydroxide, as a fluid solution, demonstrates a characteristic viscosity of 78 mPa·s that is much greater than that of water i,e. 1.0 mPa·s. The viscosity of sodium hydroxide as with any chemical is inversely related to its temperature. It means viscosity decreases as temperature increases and vice versa. The viscosity of sodium hydroxide plays a direct role in its application as well as its storage. Sodium hydroxide is used in several areas commercially. For example, it is used in the production of pulp and paper, textiles, soaps and detergents, and as a drain cleaner.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Sodium Hydroxide production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges.
