Sodium Gluconate

Ask for a price

Sodium gluconate is used in industrial alkaline cleaning solutions.

In this application, it is particularly effective, even when compared to agents such as NTA and EDTA.

Sodium gluconate is commonly used in liquid formulations in combination with other ingredients such as surfactants, sodium hydroxide, sodium silicate, and phosphates.

Such formulations can be more effective due to the synergism arising from the combination of the properties of two or three components:

Trisodium phosphate, used as a detergent, does not have complexing properties and in hard water can precipitate calcium in the form of insoluble phosphate salt. Sodium gluconate added to the solution reacts with calcium ions to form a soluble careless compound. Surfactants are generally more effective in soft or demineralized water.

Since it is very expensive to demineralize water, adding sodium gluconate to the formulation is an economical solution.

Silicates complement the action of sodium hydroxide by imparting increased alkalinity and preventing corrosion.

Sodium gluconate imparts synergy to these properties.

Due to the combination of complexing, dispersing and anticorrosive properties, high solubility and increased stability in a strongly alkaline environment, sodium gluconate is the best complexing agent for creating alkaline formulations.

Sodium Gluconate


Sodium gluconate is mainly used as food and food additives.

Sodium gluconate in the food industry is a complexing agent and flavor enhancer (food additive designed to enhance taste sensations by increasing the sensitivity of taste buds).

In addition to the indicated name of the substance, industrial designs are also used called sodium gluconate, sodium D-gluconate, sodium salt of D-gluconic acid.

As a component, sodium gluconate is irreplaceable in alkaline compounds.
