There are a wide variety of adhesives in the world. Each type of adhesive has its own set of individual qualities that makes it suited for particular purposes. Starch glue is one of the most important and widely used types of adhesives, and it is especially used in corrugated plants. In many facilities that produce corrugated materials, the starch glue is enhanced by incorporating Borax into the mixture. If your facility does this, then you may want to consider using liquid boric acid during production.
Why Is Liquid Boric Acid Necessary?
Borax improves the quality of starch glue in many ways. One important thing it does is to make the adhesive better able to hold water. It also interacts with the starch molecules, giving the starch adhesive much better viscosity. However, one negative side effect of powdered Borax is that it tends to get everywhere. Powdered Borax gets into the air and can be dangerous when breathed in and it just generally makes the plant messier. Facilities that use Borax have to use extra health and safety precautions. Liquid boric acid completely eliminates these issues, while still adding to the quality of your starch adhesive.
How Can Liquid Boric Acid Improve My Plant’s Production?
When liquid boric acid is used instead of powdered Borax, a lot of problems can be averted. When liquid boric acid is mixed with the glue, it won’t get into the air. You don’t have to worry about irritating dust contaminating the air in your plant. There is no chance of a gigantic mess happening from spilled Borax powder getting everywhere. The use of liquid, rather than powdered, boric acid makes it easier to keep the facility up to health and cleanliness standards. Liquid Borax has the same benefits to your adhesive as powdered Borax but without the mess!
