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.
Thermoset elastomers are vulcanized (cured) to produce a degree of crosslinking between polymer chains. Magnesium oxide impacts the vulcanization process.
MagChem®20SC magnesium oxide (MgO) is used in the manufacture of silicon grain-oriented steel. MagChem 20SC reacts with the silicon steel to form a glass-like film during the high temperature anneal, which acts as an electrical insulator between core laminations in the transformer core.
