Magnesium Chloride Anhydrous
Chemical Formula: MgCl2; MgCl2:99%min
Appearance: Powder, Flake
Anhydrous magnesium chloride is a white, shiny, hexagonal crystal with a melting point of 714°C and a boiling point of 1412°C. It is very deliquescent and is higher than magnesium chloride hexahydrate and 2 water magnesium chloride. The physical chemical properties are basically the same as 6 water magnesium chloride.
Application and function
1. MgCl2 is used to ensure road safety.
Liquid MgCl2 can be used for road freeze protection.
Before winter rainfall, MgCl2 is often sprayed on the road to prevent the road from freezing. Therefore, MgCl2 can prevent the vehicle from slipping and ensure the road safety. MaCl2 is more effective against icing than NaCl, because MgCl2 contains less corrosive substances and does not cause too much damage to plants, road concrete and utility poles.
2. MgC2 is used in food
MgCl2 can be a good coagulant when making tofu. It often coagulates soy milk with magnesium sulfate. Due to its nutritional value, MgCl2 is also an integral part of infant formula.
3. MgCl2 is used to store hydrogen
An ammonia molecule has abundant hydrogen atoms. Ammonia can be absorbed by the surface of solid MgCl2. Through gentle heating, ammonia can be released from MgCl2, and hydrogen can be obtained through the catalyst.
4. MgCl2 is used in industry
It is used to produce the cement. Due to its non-flammable, it is often used in various fire protection equipments. The textile and paper industry also take advantage of this feature.
5. MgCl2 is used for medical industry
Because it is rich in Mg, it is the most effective nutritional supplement. There are forms such as pills and capsules. Mg is an indispensable element for the body's various functions. It helps strengthen bones and teeth and prevent blood clotting. Taking appropriate doses can prevent serious diseases such as heart disease and osteoporosis. However, patients with kidney disease should strictly avoid using magnesium chloride; in addition, it is not recommended for people with allergies.
6. MgCl2 is used for metallurgy:
Used to make refractory material and is raw material of making number 2 flux and smelting magnesium.
7. MgCl2 is used for machinery industry
In daily life, magnesium and it can be made into machine packing chest, triangle cushion and furniture etc.
8. MgCl2 is used to agriculture
Used to make magnesium fertilizer, potassium magnesium fertilizer and cotton Defoliant
9. MgCl2 is used in chemical industry
It is used to make all kinds magnesium slat such as magnesium oxide, magnesium hydroxide, magnesium carbonate, cracker kindling and raw material of antifreeze.
