Chemical and Physical Properties
Molecular weight: 291.30
Melting point: 743°C Specific gravity: 1.88
Appearance: white crystalline granules or powder
Solubility: 4.53% by weight in saturated solution (water) at room temperature; other solutions (methanol, propylene glycol) in data sheet
Stability: Neobor TG is a stable crystalline product that does not change chemically under normal storage conditions. If wetted, it reacts exothermically with the water, forming borax decahydrate. Prevent exposure of the product to moisture and avoid wide fluctuations in temperature and humidity, which can also cause the product to cake. Maintain the integrity of the packaging to help avoid these issues.
