Chlorine is a pure, amber liquid about 1.5 times heavier than water. Gas chlorine is greenish-yellow in colour. It is approximately 2.5 times heavier than air, which causes it initially to remain close to the ground in places with little air movement. Chlorine has a pungent odour and is a strong oxidizing agent.
Chlorine manufacturing companies produce chlorine on an industrial scale through the process of electrolysis of aqueous solutions of sodium chloride, and the product is gaseous in its primary form. Sodium hydroxide and hydrogen are also obtained in this method. In the condensation process it is introduced into various sizes of pressurised packaging.
Chlorine is the main building block for the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Chlorine wholesale is also available for producers involved in PVC manufacture and aluminium etching. These industries utilize chlorine in their processes on a significant scale. Chlorine is also known as a disinfectant in drinking water and in swimming pools. Chlorine is also used in areas like disinfection, medicine, public safety, and improving our daily lives.
