Dissolving mechanism:Solid sodium silicate's dissolving process in water is different from the dissolution of ordinary electrolytes. It is a complex physical and chemical process. The dissolving process can be divided into 3 stages:Water dissolves: when solid sodium silicate contact with water and h
