Caustic Potash (KOH) Replacement

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 […]

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 Slurry – Martin Marietta is North America’s largest producer of synthetic, high purity magnesium hydroxide slurry (Mg(OH)2) for use in industrial and biological wastewater treatment to adjust pH, supplement alkalinity and precipitate heavy metals.  Since FloMag® magnesium hydroxide slurry provides long lasting alkalinity and improved pH control, it can effectively replace lime, caustic […]

Wastewater Treatment Plant operators use alkalinity as a tool to control and optimize biological activity for efficient wastewater treatment. Proper alkalinity control contributes to expanded water treatment capacity, better permit compliance, cleaner discharge, better use of capital, better process control, lower risk of process upset, and avoids smelly sulfur bacteria! To find out how much […]

For decades, caustic soda has been known for price and supply volatility. As a result, it is not uncommon for current purchasers of caustic soda solution to investigate “caustic soda replacement”, “caustic soda substitution”, “caustic soda supplementation”, “caustic soda partial substitution”, or to be interested in “caustic soda comparison” with other “alternative sources of alkalinity” […]

Magnesium hydroxide is ”slightly soluble in water at room temperature”. “If magnesium hydroxide is only slightly soluble in water, how would it function in my treatment process?” Let’s provide an answer to that question! Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties produces a high-solids, high-stability magnesium hydroxide slurry. Liquid slurry is magnesium hydroxide particles suspended in water. Magnesium […]

CellGuard®OP Magnesium Hydroxide Slurry can offer several economic and process benefits in mechanical and chemical pulp bleaching. Cost savings from the reduction or elimination of certain bleach chemicals can be achieved by employing CellGuard®OP as an alternative alkali and cellulose protector.  Additional benefits such as a reduction in BOD/COD and anionic trash can improve wastewater […]
