Product Introduction:

Ferric chloride melting point 306℃, boiling point 316℃, soluble in water and strong water absorption, can absorb the water in the air and moisture. FeCl3 out from the aqueous solution with six crystalline water is FeCl3 · 6H2O, six iron chloride is orange crystal. Ferric chloride is a very important iron salt.



Mainly used for metal etching, sewage treatment. The etching includes copper, stainless steel, aluminum and other materials, and the raw water treatment with low oil degree, which has the advantages of good effect and cheap price, but brings the disadvantages of water color yellowing. Also used in printing and dyeing roller engraving, electronic industrial circuit board and fluorescent digital cylinder production. The construction industry is used to prepare concrete to enhance the strength, corrosion resistance and water resistance of concrete. It can also be prepared with ferric chloride, calcium chloride, aluminum chloride, aluminum sulfate, hydrochloric acid and other mud coagulation waterproof agent, inorganic industry to manufacturing other iron salts and ink. The dye industry is used as an oxidant for Indicotin dye staining. Printing and dyeing industry used as a dye ant. It is used as a chlorine extraction agent to extract gold and silver. Organic industries are used as catalysts, oxidants, and chlorinated agents. The glass industry is used as a hot colorant in glassware. Sosoap industry is used as a condensant for soap waste recovery.

Another important use of ferric chloride is hardware etching, etching products such as: glasses frames, clocks, electronic components, signs and nameplates
