Product overview

Purifeed is used as builder for detergent (clothes, dishwasher). Its layered crystalline structure brings Purifeed advanteges compared to usual sodium silicate powder. As its advantages, it easily captures multivallent ions in soft water, and it hardly causes caking or scaling. Because, softener use, Purifeed changes into substances existing in nature, it has little effect on the natural environment.
