Due to a combination of excellent properties, including good emulsifying and suspension properties, along with reserve alkalinity, sodium metasilicate is finding uses in soaps and detergents, including those for automatic dish-washing use.
One principal use of sodium metasilicate is in the pulp and paper industry. It is used in sizing and coating paper. It is also used, coupled with hydrogen peroxide, in the cellulose bleaching process, in which it acts as a buffer and stabilizing agent.
