About Silicates:

A Silicate is a salt or ester extracted from silicic acid. Solid silicates are usually stable and well characterised. Any of numerous insoluble and complex metal salts that hold silicon and oxygen in the anion, constitute the largest class of minerals, and are further utilised in building materials like the cement, bricks, and glass.

Industrial Uses:

  • Glass
  • Foundries
  • Construction
  • Ceramics
  • Chemical industry

Production Process:

  • Production of Silicates via Furnace Process.

In this process, silica sand is fused with soda ash at about 1,100oC to form water glass, that is, glass-like sodium silicate, which is then crushed and dissolved in water and digested under pressure with steam to finally produce neutral silicate.
