Properties and advantages

  • Lithium silicates are high ratio, low viscosity solutions.
  • Compared to potassium- and sodium silicates, lithium silicates are less soluble once they are dried.
  • They exhibit less desalting effects compared to potassium- and sodium silicates.
  • The binding and refractory properties of potassium- and sodium silicates can be improved by mixing them with lithium silicates.


Applications

  • Inorganic binder in :
    • Ceramic materials
    • Refractory materials
    • Welding wires
  • Coatings (anti-corrosive) and paints
  • Concrete floor hardeners
