Borax Pentahydrate - Overview
Borax pentahydrate, also known as Etibor 48 or sodium tetraborate pentahydrate, is the most common form of sodium borate used in various industries. It is a white, odorless crystalline granular or powder product that is mildly alkaline both alone and in solution. Compared to Borax Decahyrdate, which is physio-chemically comparable, Etibor 48 has a higher Boron content per unit mass, a lower ratio of bound water and is less hygroscopic.
Borax pentahydrate applications are mostly the same as borax decahydrate. It can be used as cleaning agent, adhesives, cosmetics, and antifreeze. Borax pentahydrate can also be added to fertilizers to provide boron as a nutrient to the plants.
