Borax Decahydrate Crystals

About The Product

When people think of Borax Decahydrate (also known as Borax or Sodium Tetraborate) they only think of a white crystalline or fine powder. However, in few Asian countries like India, China etc. Borax Decahydrate is traditionally used in Crystal form.

Borax Decahydrate Crystals (as they are commonly called) are mainly composed of Boric Oxide (B,o,), Sodium Oxide and water.

Borax Decahydrate crystals are transparent, colourless & not flammable or reactive. They are measuring approx. 3-5 inches in size.

Uses and Benefits of Borax Decahydrate Crystals

  • Borax Decahydrtae Crystals act as a source of slow and controlled release of micronutrient boron inAgriculture applications. In areas prone to heavy & frequent rainfall, the valuable nutrients get leached off from the top layer of soil. Borax Decahydrate Crystals are usually used in such areas to prevent leaching and provide a slow and sustained release of Boron.
