Specialty magnesium oxide are manufactured to precise specifications in chemistry, size and surface area. Specialty high surface area magnesium oxides are calcined at temperatures below 700°C to produce highly reactive magnesium oxides for use in specialty applications such as:
- Food Grade
- Rubber & Plastics
- agricultural applications.
Specialty magnesium oxide SMO C is a medium reactive, micronized, magnesium oxide powder formulated for applications requiring maximum consistency in chemical properties, physical properties, and reactivity. SMO C is used in the manufacture of silicon grain-oriented steel for high performance electrical transformers, specialty ceramics, and coatings.
SMO D is a highly reactive, micronized, magnesium oxide powder for use as a thickener in sheet/bulk molding compounds, an acid acceptor in PVC applications, and as a curing agent in neoprene/phenolic adhesives.
Messi provides magnesium oxide for use in agricultural applications.
AMag is a high purity agricultural grade magnesium oxide that provides a source of magnesium as a nutrient. Magnesium oxide is useful in correcting magnesium deficiencies in a wide variety of soils and crops.
Magnesium Oxide (MgO) as a Food Additive (food ingredients)
Food additives (food ingredients) contribute to the overall appeal, convenience, nutritive value, and quality of foods. Food grade magnesium oxide is often used as a food additive (food ingredients) for powdered foods desiccant (drying agent), color retention, pH modification or as a magnesium mineral supplement.
Food grade magnesium oxide adds dietary value in the form of the mineral magnesium in dietary supplements. Magnesium is the fourth most common mineral in human bodies, with half of it found in bones as a strengthening component. Magnesium in blood and cells is vitally important for many functions such as cell metabolism, regulation of heartbeat and blood pressure, energy production, and neuromuscular functioning.
