So, what is sodium formate?

Sodium formate is a white crystalline powder that has a wide range of applications in various industries, including agriculture, leather production, and chemical synthesis. This organic salt is commonly used as a preservative for animal feed and as a buffering agent in the dyeing process for textiles. In addition, it serves as a key intermediate in the production of other chemicals, such as formic acid, which is used in the pharmaceutical industry. Sodium formate also has unique properties that make it useful in deicing agents for roads and runways during winter months. Despite its diverse uses, sodium formate must be handled with care due to its caustic nature.
