As white transparent tablet, caustic soda flake is a form of sodium hydroxide, which is a strongly alkaline caustic. Compared with caustic soda pearl, caustic soda flake has a lower cost, thus it is suitable for industry use. As a strong base, sodium hydroxide is very widely used by the chemical industry, in many scenarios where it is desirable to increase the alkalinity of a mixture, or to neutralize acids. So the caustic soda flake is suitable for use in many applications like manufacturing soap, paper, aluminium, various sodium compounds and detergents, for pH regulation, and for organic synthesis.

Sodium hydroxide is also frequently used as an industrial cleaning agent where it is often called caustic. It is added to water, heated, and then used to clean the process equipment, storage tanks, etc. It can dissolve grease, oils, fats and protein based deposits. It is also used for cleaning waste discharge pipes under sinks and drains in domestic properties.

Food uses of sodium hydroxide include washing or chemical peeling of fruits and vegetables, chocolate and cocoa processing, caramel coloring production, poultry scalding, soft drink processing, and thickening ice cream. Olives are often soaked in sodium hydroxide for softening; or, if soaked longer, for transformation into black olives.
