Insulation World Kenya Limited is the leading distributer of sodium Metasilicate in Nairobi, Kenya.

Sodium Metasilicate Pentahydrate, commonly abbreviated as SMS Penta, is a ionic chemical compound and the main component of commercial sodium silicate solutions. It is a colorless solid that is crystalline in form. SMS Penta is both hygroscopic and deliquescent in nature and is soluble in water, but not in alcohols. When used with surfactants, Sodium Metasilicate Penta enhances the suspension of removed soils such as grease and dirt deposits and prevents reaccumulation. For this reason, it’s commonly used in manufacturing high-efficiency in soaps, detergents, and metal cleaners.


Sodium metasilicate is a silicic acid salt, classified as an inorganic salt product. It is non-toxic, harmless, and odorless, with purifying, emulsifying, moistening, dispersing, permeating, and PH buffering abilities. As an aqueous solution, it is capable of hygroscopy and deliquescence when in contact with air.


It is often used for its fast dissolving rate and it’s broad range of uses.
It is great multifunctioning ingredient in detergent. It is a strong buffering agent, so can prevent large changes in pH. It protects surfaces against corrosion, is a bleach stabilizer and prevents dirt from being redeposited.
It is used to protect components in high temperature manufacturing processes, such as for bricks and mortars.
It can be used to speed up the setting of dry cements. It also has the added benefit of preventing segregation of solids in oil well cements.
It has deflocculant properties, so is often used in clay slurries. The adsorption onto the surface of the clay particles causes them to repel each other which creates smoother ceramics.
