We offer high quality Bleaching Powder to our valuable customers. Available with us at highly affordable market prices, these powders are widely used for the disinfection of drinking water or swimming pool

water. The quality controllers keep strict supervision over the entire manufacturing processes to ensure that these processes are carried in conformity  to international quality standards.

Available with us is a range of Bleaching Powder. These are formulated by reacting calcium hydroxide solids with chlorine gas at our vendor's premises. Bleaching Powder is basically a mixture of calcium

hydrochloride Ca(ClO)2 and the basic chloride CaCl2, Ca(OH)2, H2O with some slaked lime, Ca(OH)2.

Uses:-

Oxidizing bleach works by breaking the chemical bonds that make up the chromophore. This changes the molecule into a different substance that either does not contain a chromophore, or contains a

chromophore that does not absorb visible light.

A reducing bleach works by converting double bonds in the chromophore into single bonds. This eliminates the ability of the chromophore to absorb visible light.
