BETONCHEM Corporation manufactures many silicate-based chemicals for the Detergent, Household Cleaning, and Industrial/Institutional Cleaning markets. Soluble sodium and potassium silicates and hydrous polysilicates serve as cleaning aids, processing aids, and corrosion inhibitors in detergents. zeolite is the builder of choice in detergent powders.  metasilicates provide buffered alkalinity required in I&I cleaning. BETONCHEM's silicate products provide the alkalinity, buffering, building, corrosion inhibition, soil/grease dispersion, liquid-carrying capacity, and granule agglomeration or anti-cake properties needed by today's detergent and cleaning formulations.
How It Works      
Soluble silicates contribute to detergents as cleaning aids, processing aids, and corrosion inhibitors. The alkali in silicate helps to adjust pH of the formulation for best cleaning.  The silica from the silicate can enhance or build surfactant performance. As well the silica acts as a corrosion inhibitor for metal surfaces and also serves to disperse soil particles to avoid redeposition on fabric surfaces. Liquid silicates can also be used to agglomerate detergent components in granule manufacture. 
BETONCHEM provides silicates in various forms including sodium and potassium liquid silicates, spray-dried powder hydrous polysilicates, high-alkalinity metasilicates, and sodium aluminosilicate (zeolite). Zeolite is the builder of choice for powder detergents and is an excellent water softener to enhance surfactant action. Zeolite removes hard-water calcium via ion-exchange to soften water during the cleaning process. Zeolite can also serve as an anti-cake in powder detergent formulas and as well, exhibits high liquid carrying capacity to carry other ingredients (surfactants, fragrances, etc.) into the formula.
