Chemical formular: Mgcl2 6H2O
Appearance: pure white flake
Chemically, magnesium chloride is represented as MgCl2. It is a naturally occurring mineral salt which is mostly obtained from seawater and brine. In its pure form, it can be identified as a colorless, odorless, powdery substance with a bitter taste. It gets dissolved in water easily. Magnesium chloride is a versatile compound with a number of uses in food preparation, health and personal well-being areas, road care and industry.
Magnesium chloride is popularly used in food preparation, particularly in Asian communities and children's formulas. Magnesium chloride works as a coagulant agent on liquid forms of soy, helping the material solidify into tofu. It is also added to formula milk fed to babies. It is a compound added to most foods sold to consumers and acts as a mineral supplement.
Used in the Medical Industry
MgCI2 can be found in capsules and tablets and can be used as nutritional supplements. When taken regularly, it prevents blood clotting, keeps blood pressure in check, strengthens teeth and bones, and reduces the risk of severe ailments such as osteoporosis, heart attack, etc
Research has proved that Hypomagnesaemia 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
Plants need several minerals for growth. Magnesium chloride provides magnesium to plants to correct deficiencies in mineral content. Its use in farming is important since it is majorly used to replace magnesium sulfate.
Liquid magnesium chloride is widely used as an anti-icer. If it is sprayed on roadways before precipitation, it delays the formation of ice and prevents its adhesion to the surface of the road. Thus, it controls the excessive accumulation of snow and ice on the roads in winter months. This, in turn, reduces the chance of skidding of vehicles and improves driving conditions. As compared to any other anti-icer like sodium chloride, it is the more preferred one mainly because it is less corrosive in nature. Moreover, it does not cause any harm to plant life growing beside roadways.
Magnesium chloride tends to absorb a lot of moisture from the air. When its liquid or powdered form is applied on dusty areas such as excavation sites, race courses, etc.. Thus, it prevents small dust particles from flying around and contaminating the air the dust gets suppressed onto the ground.
For Manufacturing Industrial Products
Along with its health and public safety uses, magnesium chloride is also used in a number of industrial processes, including textile production. Among the environmental industry applications of magnesium chloride, it is also used as an industrial dye and dye waste remover. It is particularly common in printing mills and other paper textile manufacturing centers, where it is used to neutralize and clean wastewater byproducts. Formulated to accuracy, our Magnesium Chloride Flakes are suitable to be used in the preparation of Oxychloride Cement (3MgOMgC1211H2O) and Magnesium Hydroxide Mg(OH)2
