Caustic Soda



Caustic Soda, also widely known as Sodium Hydroxide, is primarily used in water-based fluids as an economic source of hydroxyl ions to control pH. Caustic Soda is a strong base and when solubilized in water it dissociates into Sodium and Hydroxyl ions in solution. Although used commonly in the Oil & Gas industry, Caustic Soda is used in many industries globally.
