Is Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate Toxic?


Magnesium chloride hexahydrate is a pure, colorless monoclinic crystal. In addition, industrial products made of it are often yellow-brown, containing about 40-50% of magnesium chloride, certain impurities such as magnesium sulfate and chloride, with a bitter taste, which are non-toxic.

1. Application of magnesium chloride hexahydrate

In the metallurgical industry, magnesium chloride hexahydrate is used as an adhesive for refractory materials and furnace walls and used for producing No.2 flux and tempering magnesium metal. Magnesium chloride hexahydrate is a material for producing various magnesium salts in the chemical industry.

2. Is magnesium chloride hexahydrate toxic?

We will show you that magnesium chloride is a less toxic product. Most of the toxic substances are nothing more than clotting or destroying neurons. The toxicity of magnesium chloride comes from its own blood clotting effect. And commonly-seen magnesium chloride hexahydrate is non-toxic.

Manufacturers of magnesium chloride hexahydrate tell everyone that brine is the mother liquor remaining in the salt pond after salt being made from seawater or salt lake water. The main components are magnesium chloride, calcium sulfate, calcium chloride and sodium chloride, which taste bitter and poisonous and are cooled by transpiration. Afterwards, magnesium chloride crystals are precipitated, which are called lumps. The brine tofu we eat is made by using it as a coagulant.
