Property: Colorless, odorless, tasteless, strongly alkaline. Solid type: White powder or granules, hygroscopic, readily soluble in water. The aqueous solution may absorb CO2 and form aluminum hydroxide precipitate. Addition of NaOH is required to increase stability. Liquid type: Transparent slurry, stable during storage life. Prolonged stay of diluted aqueous solution may cause aluminum hydroxide precipitate.
