Process description of caustic dilution:
Caustic solutions, such as caustic soda, are normally commercially available in concentrations of 50% and higher. The dilution of an alkaline solution is a controlled process, which prevents precipitation and/or extreme exothermic reactions.
Caustic soda is the designation for solutions of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) in water. These are alkaline solutions. Caustic soda dissolves very well under heat development in water. Caustic soda is one of the most frequently used laboratory and industrial chemicals as a cleaning agent.
