Stannic Chloride

BANKASTANNIC® SnCl4 is a clear, colourless, heavy fuming liquid, provides good ability to toughen glass the largest application of Stannic Chloride. As hot glass is released from the mould into a spray or vapour of Stannic Chloride, a thin film of tin oxide is deposited on the surface of the glass. The film imparts a scratch and scuffs resistance to glassware such as bottles and jars used for food and beverages.

BANKASTANNIC® SnCl4 serves as a chemical intermediate in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, polymers, resins, urethane, pesticides, paint, fungicides, wood preservatives, electro conductive coatings, security alarm glazing and deicing of windshield.
