Sodium hydroxide, also known as lye or caustic soda.
Sodium hydroxide is used in many industries, mostly as a strong chemical base in the manufacture of pulp and paper, textiles, drinking water, soaps and detergents and as a drain cleaner.
Sodium hydroxide is frequently used as an industrial cleaning agent where it is often called “caustic”. It is added to water, heated, and then used to clean process equipment, storage tanks, etc. It can dissolve grease, oils, fats and protein based deposits. It is also used for cleaning waste discharge pipes under sinks and drains in domestic properties.
It is also the chemical that induces saponification with fats and oils to create soap.
This is a hazardous material and should be handled with care. Always use safety precautions when using sodium hydroxide!
