Borax Decahydrate Granular

About The Product

Borax Decahydrate Granular is the refined form of natural sodium borate. Borax Decahydrate Granular is mainly composed of boric oxide (B,O,), sodium oxide and water.
It is a mild, alkaline salt, white and crystalline, with excellent buffering and fluxing properties. When dissolved in water, it hydrolyzes to give a mildly alkaline solution, thus capable of neutralizing acidic soils. It is an important multifunctional source of B,O” particularly where the simultaneous presence of sodium is beneficial.

Borax Decahydrate Granular is used as a source of micronutrient B and can be blended with commonly used bulk I liquid fertilizers & micronutrient mixtures for Soil application or Foliar Spray.

Uses and Benefits of Borax Decahydrate Granular

Borax Decahydrate Granular is widely used for:

  • Direct soil application for all types of crops.
  • Manufacture of solid & liquid micronutrient mixtures & formulations.
  • Coating and/or blending of compound or bulk fertilizers.
  • Manufacturing of other Borates, Boric Acid, Sodium PerBorate etc.
  • Used as preservatives for washing citrus fruits like oranges to reduce spoilage of fruits by moulds.
