Applications

As a Dust Suppressant

Due to its extreme hygroscopic quality and being environmentally-friendly used in many countries as a dust suppressant or dust binder on it is dusty roads, unpaved helipads, inside mine shafts and tunnels in coal mines, open-cast iron ore and coal mines or where volcanic dust could pose a problem. In thickly wooded areas where flying dust could spoil trees etc, by using a solution or Mg Cl2 6H20 with water, using simple apparatus of a road tanker with a spray boom.

As A De-icing Compound
One of the major uses all over the world is as a de-icing compound. Being completely environmentally-friendly, it is used extensively to keep outdoor surfaces around hotels, private homes as well as roads, etc. free of ice, especially at ski-resorts in Europe, Korea and Japan. The other de-icers which have high Sodium content can pollute underground water resources and destroy vegetation.

 

Hypomagnesaemia
Extensively used for the treatment of Hypomagnesaemia (Grass Tetany or Grass Staggers). Recent research has proved that this condition mainly in cattle and sheep follows after winter when a herd is turned on to lush spring grass. Hypomagnesaemia is more noticeable in cattle grazing on pastures which have recently received a dressing of nitrogenous or potash fertilizer. By spraying a solution of Magnesium Chloride on grass or even directly on the animal or mixed into the cattle feed, this condition is prevented and has proved to be extremely beneficial to livestock. Magnesium Chloride being environmentally-friendly, will not damage either grasslands or the cattle. For more information contact our dealer FARM INDUSTRIES LTD. NEW ZEALAND.

Industrial flooring
It is used in industrial floorings, ship decks, railway coach floorings,
hospital floors and for aircraft hangar floors, ammunition factory floors, missile silos and underground armament factories and bunkers. The famous Siegfried Line of WW-II on the border of Germany and France had its entire floor rendering of this cement.

 

Pharmaceutical digestive remedies
Magnesium Chloride is used in the manufacture of Magnesium Hydroxide Mg(OH)2 for further preparation of Antacids for relieving stomach ailments and ulcers. It is also used for alimentation. As a Flame Retardant.

One of the most important uses of Magnesium Hydroxide today in Europe and America is as a flame retardant in polymers. Recent regulation in the west to ban or curtail the use of halogenated etardants (considered carcinogenic) has increased the demand for Mg(OH)2 retardants, going up to several thousand tonnes per year. Mg(OH)2 withstands up to 340oC and has been used as an effective flame retardant particularly for poly- oleofins. The Asahi Glass company in Tokyo manufactures a range of Magnesium Hydroxide for flame retardant applications and are potential customers for Magnesium Chloride. The main suppliers in Europe are Kyowa Chemical Industry (Kagowa) of Japan.

 

Impact-proof, fire-retardant, anti-static flooring
Another major use is in the preparation of Oxychloride Cement (3MgO MgCl2 11H2O) which are made up in carefully balanced proportions of Magnesium Chloride and a dry mix consisting of calcined Magnesium Oxide (MgO) or Magnesite with fillers and other aggregates depending upon the requirement. These cements are fast setting and form a dense stone like product of smooth texture which is extremely strong, impact resistant, fire retardant and non sparking (antistatic).


Magnesium Oxychloride Cement (3MgO MgCl2> 11H2>O) is a tough stone-like, fire-proof compound that can be used for light or heavy floorings. Having a tremendous load bearing capacity. It can ithstand vibrations from heavy cast-iron wheel movement without the least trace of cracks or fissures. It is ideal for coating wooden floors, theater stages and renovating old lofts. Oil and grease stains can be rubbed off easily without leaving any marks on it.

Soft Grinding Wheels
Oxychloride Cement is used in manufacturing soft grinding wheels (Danish Stones) for grinding foodgrains, pulses, in the developing countries. In India, two thirds of our production is sold to this segment of the market. Inquiries from soft grinding wheel manufacturers in the U.A.E. and Sudan have been received by us.

 

Textile Finishing : It is used directly as Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate extensively for dressing & finishing in the textile industry.

 

Other uses of Magnesium Chloride Flakes

  • It is used as a fireproofing agent for impregnation of wood, especially mine timbers and specialised particle boards.
  • It is used as an additive in manufacturing fertilisers.
  • It is used in preparation of bath salts since it contains therapeutic minerals. The famous ‘Dead Sea Mud’ is rich in Magnesium Chloride.
  • It is also used to coat the insides of ore cars to prevent freezing of moist-ore in cold countries.
  • As a fire-extinguishing agent.
  • To fireproof steel beams.
  • It is used in sugar and beet processing.
  • It is used in effluent treat-ment.
  • It is used as a humectant in the paper industry.
  • Also extensively used in processing soya bean as a food additive

 

Storage and Handling : Our product is non-dangerous and is safe and simple to use. But it is very hygroscopic material, so storage in clean and dry place.
