Martin Marietta’s MagChem® product line offers a variety of chemistries and physical properties to meet a multitude of industrial applications worldwide. The high purity and consistency of the MagChem products offer superior performance in a broad range of applications such as:

Leather Tanning

Leather ProductsFor leather tanning applications, MagChem 10 CR provides a consistent and controlled rate of pH increase allowing the chrome to uniformly penetrate leather hides to react completely with the collagen and thus prevent staining. A single addition of MagChem 10 CR at the beginning of the chrome basifying step requires less labor compared to sodium- or calcium-based alkalis. In addition, neutralized chrome contains water soluble magnesium sulfate, which is not detrimental to leather.

Drilling Fluids and Cements

oil-rigs-smMagChem 10 or MagChem P98 Pulverized can be added to Portland cement to make a tighter seal for down well drilling holes. After Portland cement is set, MagChem magnesium oxide hydrates and expands providing a tight bond between the ground and pipe insert. MagChem light burned magnesium oxide products can be used as a viscosity modifier in drilling muds.

Other Applications
