Description

White to light yellow, fuming liquid. Stannic chloride absorbs Water to form a white solid. Stannic chloride is used to weight Silk and as a Mordant in dyeing textiles. It is also used in the manufacture of Blueprint paper and other sensitized papers. Stannic chloride is used in coatings too increase electrical Conductivity, light reflectivity, and Abrasion resistance.

Synonyms and Related Terms
