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.
Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties is a manufacturer of many unique and specialty grades of magnesium hydroxide and magnesium oxide. Together, those two chemicals Mg(OH)2 and MgO are in a class of materials called “Magnesia”. The products described below are produced by reacting natural magnesium-rich brine with dolomitic lime under controlled conditions. The grades of synthetic […]
Magnesia contributes to many industrial applications. Two dozen industrial applications for magnesia are listed at this link.
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.
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 […]
This Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties (MMMS) blog comments on portions of the latest United States Geological Service of MAGNESIUM COMPOUNDS. We reference independent USGS data to support our “big picture” blog statements. The latest USGS report is available in full online at: https://minerals.usgs.gov/minerals/pubs/commodity/magnesium/mcs-2018-mgcom.pdf The MMMS plant in Manistee, MI is a major producer of magnesia […]
