Art-No: GROUP-CHCRYOLITE
Laguna Cryolite in Bulk
Quick Overview

Laguna Cryolite in Bulk is white powder that is insoluble in water.

It is sold in 50-lb containers.

Sodium Hexaflouroaluminate is a synthetic form of cryolite.

Derived from granite, it is made to have properties similar to that of natural cryolite mined from the west coast of Greenland.

It is a strong fluxing agent, and has a low melting point.

Cryolite is a source of insoluble sodium, and of aluminum.

It is used mainly for its low melt properties in frits and glass, but is also used as an opacifier in glass, or as a whitener in enamels.

Also, it can be used to produce crackle glass, due to its high Coefficient of thermal Expansion (CoE)

The lack of oxygen in cryolite helps create artificial reduction in electric firings.

In large amounts, it can become volatile with silica and cause blistering.

It has a melting point of 1,832°F (950 °C.)
