Hi folks is there anyone who could help me with si02 please
Thank you phyzguy that is really helpful. I am definitely no chemist but do take health and safety serious, gloves, glasses, quality dust mask and tend to do a bit of research before trying things....quite boring really lolSilicon dioxide is quartz - a hard mineral with a melting point of ~1700 C. You will not liquefy it easily. I suspect what you have is sodium silicate or sodium metasilicate, also referred to as "water glass". I think you can thin it with water. You should be careful with it. The dried residue can be very dangerous to inhale.
Thanks Jim, I thought it may have been some kind of solvent as its supposed to evaporate quite quickly after application n please dont think I'm disputing you at all. I'm extremely grateful for your help.You thin it with water - assuming water glass. Consider reading this - especially the uses section - before you waste materials.
The covering you create is brittle. (automotive repair section) What you are really doing is making a finish out of thin windows glass.
