Sodium Silicate (Water Glass) Powder, A fine, white powder. The ratio of SiO2 to Na2O in SSG is 3.22, same as SSN liquid sodium silicates. When dissolved, it forms a hazy, colorless colloidal solution. SSG sodium silicate is used for several specialized refractory compounds and acid-resistant cements. SSG silicate functions as a binder for powdered materials which are intended to be mixed with water for use as cements (high temperature and/or acid-resistant) and for other purposes. Available in 2-Lb, 10-Lb and 50-Lb bags/ containers.
