H2O2 is a clear liquid, somewhat thicker than water, which is a strong oxidizing agent. As an inorganic chemical in industry, the technology used for H.2O2 is the auto oxidation of Anthraquinone. With its characteristic smell of acidity and readily dissolves in water, under normal (ambient) conditions the conditions are very stable with a decomposition rate of approximately less than 1% per year. One of the advantagesH2O2 compared to other oxidizing agents, it is environmentally friendly because it does not leave harmful residues. The strength of the oxidizing agent can be adjusted as needed

Chlorine or Calcium hypochlorite is a chemical compound that has the chemical formula Ca (ClO)2. Chlorine is usually used as a water disinfectant. This compound is relatively stable and has more free chlorine than sodium hypochlorite (liquid bleach). Chlorine is generally used for sanitation of public swimming pools and disinfecting drinking water. Chlorine is also used in kitchens as a disinfectant for surfaces and kitchen utensils. Other common uses include bathroom cleaners, household disinfectant sprays, algases, herbicides, and laundry detergents.

Soda ash is the sodium salt of carbonic acid which dissolves easily in water. Pure soda ash is white, colorless powder that absorbs moisture from the air, has an alkaline / bitter taste, and forms a strong alkaline solution. Glass making is one of the important uses in sodium carbonate. Can be a flux for silica, by lowering the melting point of the mixture to something that is acceptable without a special material. This "glass soda" dissolves easily in water, so calcium carbonate is added to the mixture that has not yet melted to make the glass produced is not water soluble. This type of glass is called soda lime glass, "soda" for sodium carbonate and "lime" for calcium carbonate. Can be used as a water softener in washing clothes. It collides with the magnesium and calcium ions in the water and prevents them from binding with the detergent in use. Soda ash can be used to remove grease, grease, and wine rust.

Alum has been known by the community for a long time and has many benefits. One of the many benefits of alum that is well known to many people is as a purifier for cloudy water by adding a certain amount of alum to water that looks cloudy so that over time it will turn clear, because the alum functions as a catcher of fine particles in water and turns them into sediment. Another name for alum is alum, which is a chemical compound made of water molecules that are colorless and have a crystal shape.

Here are some of the benefits of alum as well as the side effects of alum for health: water purification, fishy odor remover, eliminating body odor, cosmetic ingredients, anti-fire agents, preservatives, preventing bleeding, sprue medicine, hair oil, teeth and hair whitening.

Water glass, which is used in many batik industries, is used to strengthen the color of the procion or rhemazole types. Percent and / or remasol color types, in the world of batik, are classified as reactive dyes.

Caustic soda is an important raw material and also a material used in various chemical processes in many industries. The pulp and paper industry is one of the largest users of caustic soda products worldwide, where caustic soda is used as a raw material in the process. pulping dan bleaching. Caustic soda is also used in the waste paper recycling process, namely in the "de-inking" process of used paper, as well as being widely used in water treatment processes.

In the textile industry, caustic soda is used in cotton processing as well as in the dyeing process for synthetic fibers such as nylon and polyester. In the soap and detergent industry, caustic soda is used in saponification reactions, namely the conversion reaction of vegetable oils into soap. Caustic soda is also used in the manufacture of anionic surfactants, which are an important component in detergent and cleaning products. The oil and gas (oil and gas) industry utilizes caustic soda in the exploration, production and processing stages of oil and natural gas, where caustic soda is used to remove odors that come from hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and mercaptan. In the aluminum production process, caustic soda is used to dissolve bauxite ore, which is the raw material for aluminum production. In the chemical industry, caustic soda is used as a raw material or process chemical that produces various downstream chemical products, such as plastics, pharmaceuticals, solvents, synthetic fabrics, adhesives, dyes, paints, inks, and others. Caustic soda is also widely used to neutralize acidic waste and also to absorb components in acidic exhaust gases.

Examples of caustic soda applications that are used in small quantities include household cleaning products, drink bottle cleaners, small scale soap making, and others.
