Sodium Acetate is available as an agglomerate and a powder (anhydrous) as well as a crystal (trihydrate). Sodium Acetate trihydrate is very soluble in water. Sodium Acetate anhydrous agglomerate offers the properties of non-dustiness, improved wettability, higher reactivity, higher bulk density, and improved free-flow ability.
Niacet’s technical acetates are widely used in a number of different industries and for various applications. Our acetates are used in many industrial applications. Their main effect is pH adjustment, crystallization aid, or as a catalyst or reagent. Niacet’s ingredients are used in resins, coatings, detergents, dyes, heat packs, carbon black, drilling fluids, ceramics, leather tanning, fire extinguishers, polymers, carpet backing, textile dyeing and conditioning, photography, lubricants, anti-freeze, and personal hygiene products, to mention just a few applications. Sodium Acetate is used in the leather tanning and textile dyeing. It is also used in detergent tablets and as a buffer in the photographic industry. Furthermore, it is used as a polymer stabilizer and as thermal energy storage (heat packs).
Sodium Acetate in diabetes treatment
Diabetes is one of the most common non-infectious diseases; it develops when the pancreas produces little or no insulin (type 1), or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces (type 2). Diabetes is considered one of the leading causes of death in most developed countries and is growing into an epidemic in many developing and newly industrialized nations.
Niacet’s acetates, mainly sodium acetate but also ammonium acetate, potassium acetate, and zinc acetate are used in the production of insulin. Additionally, as a constituent in insulin products, sodium acetate acts as an oxidative fuel preventing the body from producing antibodies during insulin injection.
Our manufacturing of product sodium acetate trihydrate at Tiel, NL site is certified by the Health Care Inspectorate – Pharmaceutical Affairs Medical Technology of the Dutch Ministry with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certification. This certification affirms Niacet’s commitment to supplying the highest quality active ingredients and excipients for the pharmaceutical industry.
