Water Treatment

At Reaxis, we offer a range of stannous chloride products that can be used as water treatment additives. Inorganic tin chemicals such as stannous fluoride have been used for years as a water additive. Stannous chloride is a less common stannous product, but it offers some unique functionality as it pertains to water treatment. Learn more about our line of stannous chloride-based water treatment additives and find the right specialty chemical product for your needs.

About Stannous Chloride-Based Water Treatment Additives

In water treatment, stannous chloride acts both as a reducing and corrosion protection agent. Reducing agents, such as stannous chloride solutions, play a vital role in water treatment and the broader environmental management industry.

Their primary function is to alter the oxidation state of various substances, particularly residual heavy metals. Through this process, reducing agents can effectively “reduce” or neutralize harmful metal contaminants, transforming them into less toxic, more manageable forms. In addition, stannous chloride helps in minimizing corrosion whereby the tin metal is plated out onto the water treatment equipment.

Stannous chloride solutions, in particular, are widely used due to their stability, efficiency, and versatility. By chemically reducing metal ions, they aid in the effective removal of these pollutants, contributing to safer discharge and recycle/reuse processes.

Reaxis offers a wide range of stannous chloride solution grades of differing purity and tin metal (as stannous) content. Learn more about each of our products on their respective product pages, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us for more information.

Stannous Chloride Water Treatment Additives: Solid Grades

REAXIS® C154  (Stannous Chloride Dihydrate) is our high metal content inorganic stannous tin solid grade that meets American Chemical Society (A.C.S.) specifications. REAXIS® C154 serves as the base product for all our solution-grade water treatment additive products. REAXIS® C154 and its anhydrous form, REAXIS® C162 (Stannous Chloride Anhydrous) are FDA approved for both indirect and direct food contact uses. For example, stannous chloride dihydrate is used in various dental cleaning supply products.

Stannous Chloride Water Treatment Additive Solutions

We offer four standard grades of stannous chloride solutions that act as water treatment additives, mainly differing in active tin (stannous) content. These products include:
