products used to raise or lower alkalinity and acidity submitted by Ðank
A substance that minimizes change in the acidity of a solution when an acid or base is added to the solution.
A process of adding Calcium Carbonate, an alkaline, during the manufacture of mat board to achieve an acid free rating.
Compounds like Baking Soda, or calcium carbonate, that stabilize the pH at or above neutral.
A class of water soluble chemicals that control the hydrogen ion concentration in a solution to maintain a constant pH.
Chemical compounds that help stabilize pH and maintain the level of alkalinity as it is used up in the cleaning process. Buffers are not to be confused with bulk adding extenders called "fillers."
Chemicals that maintain pH values within narrow limits by absorbing or releasing hydrogen ions.
chemical systems that stabilize the concentration of a substance; acid-base systems serve as pH buffers, preventing large changes in hydrogen ion concentration
Stable solutions or compounds such as clays and carbonates and phosphates that enable solutions or soil to resist change in concentration of soluble ions (pH). Also a solution used to calibrate electronic pH meters.
