Product information

Magnesium Oxide from LKAB Minerals can be used in a large variety of applications.

Rubber compounding – Varying grades of magnesium oxide, hydroxide and carbonate are used in the rubber industry in a variety of ways: anti-scorch additives, fillers and curing aids. Packed in low-melt poly-sachets, in bags or cartons to meet individual customer requirements

Plastics manufacture – Packed for convenient use, magnesium oxide is a filler, acid acceptor and thickener. Magnesium hydroxide is a flame retardant and smoke suppressant filler.

Water treatment – Magnesium oxide and hydroxide powders and “Hydromag G” granular. Magnesium hydroxide neutralise acidic water and effluents and can absorb or precipitate dissolved metal impurities.

Animal feed supplements – provide a source of magnesium in animal feeds, mixes and farm animal supplemental products.

Construction – Magnesium oxide and magnesium chloride are the essential components of Sorel cement. Magnesium oxide is used in fast–setting road patching compounds.

Chemicals industry – Magnesium oxides, hydroxides and carbonates are used as a starting point in the production of other magnesium chemicals and for pH control in chemical reactions.

Boiler additives – Magnesium oxide and hydroxide raise the melting point of ash, making it friable and more easily removed.

Glass manufacture – ingredients in speciality glass, fibreglass and frits.

Ceramics – basic ingredients in speciality semiconductors and technical ceramic products.

Fertilisers – Magnesium is used in fertilisers and horticultural products.
