It is mainly used as flocculant in rubber latex and refrigerant.
And it is also employed in oil exploratory well and sewage
treatment, etc. In agriculture it is used as soiless culture and
fast-effective fertilizer for acid soil. It also can be used to
make fireworks and incandescent lamp chimney in light industry, to
produce explosives in national defense industry and to paint
negative pole in electron instrument industry. It is also a raw
