Stannous Chloride

Formula: SnCl2
Alternate Names: Tin(II) chloride

Oxide Weight150.71
Formula Weight189.72
If this formula is not unified correctly please contact us.

This calculation does not have a balanced equation because the material itself does not have oxygen, this has to be taken from the kiln atmosphere during firing.

SnCl2 + O2 -> SnO2 + CL2

Weight of SnCl2 going into kiln: 189.7
Weight of SnO2 out in glaze
(O2 comes from atmosphere during firing): 150.7
2Cl lost during firing: 71
Percentage SnO2 is of original weight going in: 79.44
Remainder is LOI: 20.56
