Ammonium chloride, with the chemical formula NH4Cl, is a white, crystalline salt that is highly soluble in water. Its solutions are slightly acidic. It is found in the vicinity of some volcanic vents in its mineral form. This substance is used as a flavoring agent in some types of candies. Ammonium chloride is produced by the reaction between hydrochloric acid and ammonia.
This chemical is commonly known as Sal Ammoniac. It is a type of salt with a crystal structure.
Sal Ammoniac has various uses. For example, Sal Ammoniac is used in small amounts as a nitrogen-containing fertilizer, it is used in the manufacture of dry batteries found in the market, in the textile industry, in various chemical laboratories, in the leather industry and also in the Solvay method.
Ammonium Chloride is a type of salt that is purified at 340 degrees. It is also used in soldering, electrolyte batteries, in the dyeing industry and in the analysis of chemicals.
Product Appearance: White solid
Packaging: 25 kg bags
Chemical name: Ammonium chloride
In the production of dry batteries.
In the galvanizing industry for tin plating, in hot-dip galvanizing as a flux material, In the cosmetic industry for shampoo production as an surfactant if ALS is used.
Ammonium Chloride is used to thicken the shampoo, and in the production of some cleaners,
For refining some base metals (such as gold),
In drying some synthetic adhesives,
In hardening urea formaldehyde resins (used in the MDF industry) and in the production of particle board adhesives.
Raw materials and auxiliary materials used in the production of particle board / MDF are listed below:
Wood (beech, poplar, and larch) Cotton stalk, Urea
Polyvinyl acetate glue,
Ammonium chloride (33%). (used by dilution) In the pharmaceutical industry, it is used as an adjuvant (an adjuvant is a substance in a prescription that helps to produce the effects of other drugs),
as an expectorant in cough syrups,
and is used for its diuretic properties.
In the textile and leather industry,
in dyeing, printing, and polishing cotton, In the production of soldering tin used for soldering , (The ammonia (NH3) and hydrochloric acid (HCl) produced from the decomposition of salt removes the oxide layer that has formed on the surface of the metal, making the metal suitable for soldering).
In the feed industry, it is used as a food additive to prevent urinary stones in cattle, Lack of water consumption, imbalanced calcium-phosphorus in feed, and lack of vitamin A can cause urinary stones in cattle. When there is a problem with urinary stones, feed and water analyses should be performed.
Using trickle irrigation with dams, adjusting the calcium-phosphorus balance in the feed, adding sodium chloride (salt) and ammonium chloride to the ration can prevent urinary stones. Used in fertilizer production.
Used as a food additive in yeast production.
Used in the production of liquor and spirits in some countries.
Used as an energy source for microorganisms’ biological applications.
Used as a food additive (used in the production of a type of candy known as both sweet and salty in Europe and America)
