This essay will be talking about an oven cleanernamed “Terrifik”. It will discuss what chemicals the oven cleaner contains andtheir chemical formulas, how the oven cleaner works chemically. The essay alsoincludes information about how the oven cleaner and the chemicals it contains weremade, and where the product comes from.
Firstly, the chemicals that the oven cleanercontains are butane, sodium hydroxide and magnesium aluminosilicate. Thechemical formula of butane is C4H10. The chemical formulaof sodium hydroxide is NaOH. Magnesium aluminosilicate’s chemical formula is AL2MgO8Si2.

The purpose of liquid butane that is usedin the product is to loosen carbon molecules. Cleaners that contain sodiumhydroxide such as “Terrifik” turnthe fats to soapwhich dissolves in water and when sodium hydroxide dissolves in water it givesoff heat. This heat helps to melt anything that needs to be cleaned in the oven. Butane comes from naturalgas and it is shapeless and it is a natural form. Butane can be made withchlorine and hydrogen using the chloralkaliprocess. Butane is easy tofind in many parts of the world, and it is not expensive to mine and produce. Itis a fossil fuel and to make butane there are three steps.
The first step isthe removal of oil and condensate, which is separatingthe gas from the oil where it dissolved. The second step is the removal of the water where gas getsseparated from the water through machinery at the surface. This is done by adehydration. The final step is GlycolDehydration which is absorbing water from the wet gas. Theglycol particles get heavier, sink to the bottom of a device called a contractor,and are then removed. Additionally, this oven cleaner was originally madein a factory in China named “Dorfin” and then sent to a storage distributionunit in Vaughan. Then, the product was shipped to many stores. “Terrifik” is easilyfound in many local stores.
In conclusion, the essay includes information aboutan oven cleaner called “Terrifik”. It talked about the chemicals in the oven cleaner,how it works, all the steps of preparing the chemicals the product contains andwhere it comes from.
