Sodium Hydroxide Bonding
We have Sodium Hydroxide tanks for sale.  Our sodium hydroxide tanks are rotationally molded.  Rotational molding produces one piece, stress free tanks.  For lower concentrations of sodium hydroxide, we produce HDPE (high density polyethylene) tanks.  For high concentration sodium hydroxide, we recommend and produce Polypropylene tanks.  We can produce the Polypropylene tanks in sizes up to 3,000 gallons.

SODIUM HYDROXIDE is also known as Caustic soda, 1310-73-2, Sodium hydrate, lye and Aetznatron.  SODIUM HYDROXIDE is a highly caustic substance that is used to neutralize acids and make sodium salts.  It is corrosive to metals and tissue.
 
At room temperature, sodium hydroxide is a white crystalline odorless solid that absorbs moisture from the air. It is a manufactured substance. When dissolved in water or neutralized with acid it liberates substantial heat, which may be sufficient to ignite combustible materials. Sodium hydroxide is very corrosive. It is generally used as a solid or a 50% solution.
Sodium Hydroxide in a 50% solution will freeze at about 15 degrees Celsius (59 degrees Fahrenheit) .  It will thicken as it nears that temperature and become difficult to pump.  Sodium Hydroxide tanks will need to be heated and insulated in order to maintain a good working temperature.  Unless you are installing the Sodium Hydroxide tank inside a builiding that keeps a high enough constant temperature, we suggest you consider having us use heat pads and insulate the tank.  The heating pads (called Heat Tracing) are attached to the Sodium Hydroxide tanks and controlled with a digital control unit.  The insulation for the tank is a closed cell poylurethane foam insulation that is applied over the heating pads.  Refer to the excerpts from the Dow Chemical Caustic Soda 50% storage guidelines.

Sodium hydroxide is used to manufacture soaps, rayon, paper, explosives, dyestuffs, and petroleum products. It is also used in processing cotton fabric, laundering and bleaching, metal cleaning and processing, oxide coating, electroplating, and electrolytic extracting. It is commonly present in commercial drain and oven cleaners.
 
While HDPE tanks are good for lower concentrations of Sodium Hydroxide, Polypropylene tanks are a better chemical resistance match.  At higher concentrations, Polypropylene tanks are the best choice for Sodium Hydroxide storage.  Take a look at some impartial chemical compatibility guides such as Cole-Parmer and Grainger to verify this.  Polypropylene tanks have better chemical resistance to Sodium Hydroxide than any type of Polyethylene.  Polypropylene tanks should give you a longer service life for your Sodium Hydroxide tank.
