Sodium Hypophosphite Uses
Electroless Nickel (EN)
Sodium Hypophosphite (SHP) acts as a reducing agent to supply the electrons necessary for the EN process. The EN process allows for uniform plating thickness on not only metal objects, but also plastics and ceramics.
Used as a raw material in the production of other products, including Hypophosphorous Acid. It may be used in synthetic organic chemistry, especially in deamination via reduction of diazo derivatives.
SHP may be used as a reducing agent or antioxidant in chemical processing.
Sodium Hypophosphite can be as use as an analytical reagent.
Used as a catalyst in some polymerization reactions.
SHP is used as a stabilizer to prevent degradation of polymers during extrusion or in other heated processing.
Sodium Hypophosphite may be used as a partial fire retardant.
Ion Exchange Resin
It will provide a source of electrons in resin regeneration.
