Sodium (Na) Metal

Sodium, (Na) metal is a soft, silvery-white alkali metal that appears wax-like at room temperature and is brittle when cold. Sodium, extremely reactive, tarnishes within seconds of being exposed to the air. It also reacts vigorously with water. Sodium has excellent electrical conductivity and is an important heat transfer agent. The ionic form is vital to animal life.

Purity from 99.95%
Typical Applications

The major applications for sodium are from its ionic form or sodium-based compounds. Sodium in its metallic form can be used to refine some reactive metals, such as zirconium and potassium, from their compounds. It is used in certain alloys to improve their structure. Sodium is also used as an anti-scaling agent and as a reducing agent for metals when other materials are ineffective.
