Fluoride

 

Australia has been fluoridating potable water for more than 40 years to reduce tooth decay. Fluoridation of drinking water is supported by state and federal health authorities, the Australian Dental Association, the National Health and Medical Research Council and the World Health Organisation.

Fluoride MSDS

   Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel and dentine by
  • inhibiting acid formation by bacteria
  • interfering with the growth of harmful bacteria
  • reducing the effect of acid on the tooth
  • enhancing minor repair of enamel

Orica has been a leading chemical and service provider to the Australian Water Industry for over 80 years.  Orica can supply the complete spectrum of fluoride sources and fluoridation solutions. 

 

   

 

  Fluoride Sources     
   The main sources of fluoride are:
  • Fluorosilicic acid (H2SiF6) - 20% active fluoride solution typically preferred for large installations due to minimal operator contact
  • Sodium silicofluoride (Na2SiF6) - 60% active fluoride powder typically preferred for small to medium installations.
  • Sodium fluoride (NaF) - 40% active fluoride powder used as an alternative to sodium silicofluoride.
  • FluorodoseTM - developed for small to medium installations to significantly reduce OH&S issues and improve ease of operation.
