Sodium Hydroxide Food Grade -PICKUP ONLY

Food grade sodium hydroxide / Lye. Used for soap or biodiesel when the quality of the caustic is very critical.

This grade is also Food Codex, FCC, and Kosher certified, with a Certificate of Analysis included. Can be used for Pretzels, Olives, Lutefisk,  
Lye (sodium hydroxide) is a corrosive material used in making soap, some food products, in fuel cells, and in making bio diesel fuel.  Shipment is only made in 2 lb certified plastic containers by UPS Ground, we ship up to 4 of these 2lb containers per box. The approved plastic container is made from durable high quality HDPE with a plastic child resistant twist-off resealable cap. The benefit of this plastic container is that you may maintain the product in a place you otherwise may not (like your garage), because the resealable container inhibits the entry of moisture, so that your product stays dry and loose. Beware of suppliers that do not ship in certified containers as your product will likely be un-useable if you store for any length of time in even slightly humid conditions. Hydroxide is hydrophilic which means that it not only attracts moisture and water but it actively absorbs any moisture or water to which it is exposed. Use caution when purchasing drain openers as a source of lye because most drain openers contain other chemical in addition to the lye. These other chemicals are very undesirable and potentially harmful when used in making soap and biodiesel.
Food grade has a lower parts per million of heavy metal impurities.  It is also used in the creation of many very healthy foods.
