Description

Sodium formate (formic sodium, formic acid sodium salt) is a by-product of pentaerythritol production used as a reducing agent in organic synthesis, with a slight admixture of pentaerythritol and its derivatives.

Applications

In most cases, sodium formate is used as an antifreeze additive in cement and as a component of anti-icing agents, as well as in the production of formic acid.

Also, sodium formate is used as an antifreeze additive in the construction of monolithic concrete and reinforced concrete structures, monolithic parts of prefabricated monolithic structures and monolithic joints of prefabricated structures.
