Food additives contribute to the overall appeal, convenience, nutritive value, and quality of foods. Marinco®FCC magnesium oxide is often used as a food additive for powdered foods desiccant (drying agent), color retention, pH modification or as a magnesium mineral supplement. Marinco®FCC is odorless and non-toxic.
Seventeen nutrients have been identified as essential for plant growth. Without these nutrients, plants cannot complete their life cycles. Magnesium (Mg) is considered a “macronutrient” – those of the 17 nutrients required in relatively large quantities.
High purity, light burned MagChem®40 magnesium oxide is moderately reactive and uniformly burned to provide a higher recovery of valuable metals such as cobalt, nickel and copper from acid leach solutions. MagChem®40 can improve MgO utilization efficiency and increase the precipitate grade of the metal giving MagChem®40 superior performance in hydrometallurgy over naturally mined magnesia […]
Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties MagChem®10–325 is used in the production of glass fibers as a viscosity modifier to keep the viscosity of the glass melt within the desired range for proper formation of the filaments. MagChem®10-325 has a fine uniform size to readily melt with the other glass chemicals. It is free from coarse particles […]
Refractory materials maintain physical and chemical stability at high temperatures. Dead-burned magnesium oxide, which is produced in shaft and rotary kilns at temperatures over 1500oC, has reduced chemical reactivity and therefore is suited to refractory applications.
Modern products have created a demand for glass that is ultrathin, but yet of higher strength than traditional glass affords. Glass can be strengthened thermally or chemically. The chemical strengthening of glass arose in the 1960’s. Chemical strengthening involves the process of potassium-for-sodium ion exchange, creating a layer of higher molecular compression on the glass’s […]
