Sodium Nitrite is commonly used:-

  • within the food industry, as most meats are cured using Sodium Nitrite
  • using Sodium Nitrite to cure meats helps to preserve the meat and delay the onset of botulism (a deadly disease that can be borne in spoiled foods)
  • curing meat with Sodium Nitrite can also benefit the flavour of the meat and assist the development of the bright pink shade once cooked
  • within the botanical industry such as fertilisers, as well as herbicides and insecticides. This is because Sodium Nitrite helps to kill off the living organisms that can create a threat to plant life.
  • to form dyes for the colouring of linens
  • in the construction industry; it is used as an additive in the manufacturing of concrete
  • in emulsion paints
  • in the oil industry to prevent corrosion of the heating oil storage tanks, it also helps in the cutting and drilling of oils

  • in the Metal Industry; it is used as an accelerator in cold phosphating and it assists in the making of baths and the bluing of steel, also descaling steels and cast iron.
