Flame retardants are chemical additives used in plastics, coatings, and other products to inhibit flame sustenance. Magnesium hydroxide is used with a resin or similar base material as a flame retardant filler. This magnesia compound is physically mixed with the base material ( and “additive flame retardant”).
Magnesium hydroxide can offer economic and process benefits in pulp bleaching. Cost savings from the reduction or elimination of certain bleach chemicals can be achieved by employing CellGuard®MH magnesium hydroxide powder as an alternative alkali and cellulose protector. Additional benefits such as a reduction in BOD/COD and anionic trash can improve wastewater treatment and papermaking […]
Acidic wastewater effluents are common across a wide spectrum of industrial categories. In a perfect world, industrial users of alkalinity agents would enjoy unequalled economic and technical benefits. Magnesium hydroxide slurry is a member of the family of industrial alkalis. Environmental professionals do not need to be held captive by higher-cost treatment agents such as caustic […]
