Caustic soda, chemically called Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH), is a colorless, viscous, corrosive liquid. It is a by-product in the production of chlorine.


Caustic soda is a basic product that is widely used in a diverse range of industrial sectors, either as a raw material or as an auxiliary chemical. It is generally sold in two forms: as lye, with various concentrations (usually in the 30-32% & 49-50% range), and as solid caustic soda in the form of flakes or granules.

Three technologies are available world over for production of caustic soda – mercury cell process, diaphragm process, and membrane cell process. All three processes are in use in India, although there is strong trend indicating a shift towards the environmentally better membrane cell process. We manufacture Caustic soda through more environmentally friendly membrane technology.
