Sodium hydroxide (NaOH), commonly referred to as caustic soda, is a highly adaptable and necessary chemical component utilized in a variety of commercial, industrial, and residential applications. This material is categorized as an alkali, which is a kind of base that is alkaline in nature, soluble in water, and capable of neutralizing acids. It is an essential component of daily life because to its use in water treatment, chemical processes, the manufacturing of pulp and paper, and many other industries. 

Caustic soda comes in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on how it will be used, such as liquid, flakes, granules, cubes, and blocks. However, compared to other forms, the liquid and flake forms are far more effective. 

Caustic soda standards are crucial for a number of reasons, including the direct impact they have on the product's quality and applicability for different uses. Adherence to standards and appropriate specifications are crucial for streamlining industrial operations, fulfilling legal obligations, and reducing environmental effect. Manufacturers and consumers may take use of caustic soda's advantages while lowering hazards and guaranteeing consistent outcomes by adhering to the proper requirements. 

The obligatory ISI Certification Scheme under IS standard IS 252:2013 now includes all caustic soda parameters.

The criteria and methods for testing and sampling pure and technical caustic soda, in both its liquid and solid forms, are described in this standard. The material must be free of contaminants, including apparent impurities, grime, and foreign objects. The material must meet the criteria of the standard on a dry basis in accordance with the designated testing procedures. 

In order to protect consumer safety and advance best practices in the business, the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is essential to the development and upkeep of caustic soda standards in India.

Without the ISI Mark, this product cannot be marketed, imported, or exported into the Indian consumer market.


About ISI / BIS Certification

Indian Standards Institute, or ISI was renamed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in 1987. The official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards provides for manufacturers of various goods is the ISI Mark. It is used to indicate compliance with Indian standards (IS) set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and has been used as a conformity marking for industrial products. Manufacturers received permission from BIS to use the ISI Mark on items that comply with relevant Indian requirements through the product certification program. 

Only manufacturers (domestic or foreign) who produce the finished product will be awarded ISI Certification. This will not be given to any product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors.
