Lyes, or alkalis, are also widely used in various industrial applications. They are typically used for their basic properties, which can be useful for neutralizing acids and adjusting pH levels. They are also used for cleaning, as well as for a variety of other purposes.

In the chemical industry lyes are used in the production of many different chemicals, including detergents, paper, and textiles. For example, sodium hydroxide is used in the production of detergents, while caustic potash is used in the production of textiles. Lyes are used in the food industry for the production of many different food products. For example, sodium hydroxide is used in the production of cocoa powder, while potassium hydroxide is used in the production of soft drinks. In the petroleum industry they are used in the refining of petroleum products. For example, sodium hydroxide is used in the refining of crude oil to remove impurities. Lyes are used for cleaning and sanitation in various industries. For example, sodium hydroxide is used to clean and sanitize food processing equipment, while potassium hydroxide is used to clean and sanitize medical equipment. Lyes can be used to adjust the pH of various materials and solutions. For example, sodium hydroxide can be used to adjust the pH of wastewater before it is discharged into the environment.

It is important to note that lyes are also potentially hazardous and require proper handling and safety precautions to prevent harm to workers and the environment. They can be corrosive and can cause burns and other injuries if not handled properly. It is important to follow proper procedures for their storage, handling, and disposal.

Inorganic lyes

Products by MCAS

Inorganic lyes for a wide range of applications

Alkaline solutions are aqueous solutions of metal hydroxides. The best-known lyes are caustic soda, lye of potassium, lye of chlorine and lye of calcium. The latter are mainly used in industry. Lyes dissolve fats and are therefore used as cleaning agents. In addition, they have a caustic effect, but do not attack metals (apart from zinc and aluminium). They are used in soap production, paper production, as a cleaning agent or as a paint remover. Today, lye is commercially manufactured using a membrane cell chloralkali process. It is supplied in various forms such as flakes, pellets, microbeads, coarse powder or a solution. Lye has traditionally been used as a major ingredient in soap making. Lyes are used to cure many types of food, including canned mandarin oranges, hominy, lye rolls, century eggs, pretzels, and bagels.
