The hexafluorosilicic acid also called fluorosilicic acid or hydroflurosilicic acid is an inorganic compound with a revealing sour taste and pungent smell. It is a colorless liquid with the chemical formula H2SiF6. Hexafluorosilicic acid is produced as a co-product during the manufacture of phosphate fertilizers. Fluorosilicic acid is used in toothpaste to prevent tooth decay, and by municipal corporations to maintain fluoride levels in water. The majority of the acid is converted to aluminium fluoride and synthetic cryolite which are essential materials required for the conversion of aluminium ore into aluminium metal.
On the basis of application, global hexafluorosilicic acid market can be segmented into chemical intermediate, metal surface treatment, water fluoridation, wood preservation, glass additive, ceramic hardening, and others. Among the application segment, water fluoridation occupies the major share of the hexafluorosilicic acid due to its high demand from municipal corporations, and water treatment plants for maintaining fluoride content in water. Regulations imposed by several nations on water treatment is increasing the demand for hexafluorsilicic acid.
