The difference between Light and Heavy Magnesium Oxide.
Heavy Magnesium Oxide
The main ingredients: made by heating magnesium carbonate. Magnesium oxide mixture: magnesium oxide 60g, heavy magnesium carbonate 60g.
Characters: white powder, odorless and tasteless, can slowly absorb carbon dioxide in the air.
Functions and Indications: compare with sodium bicarbonate, acid resistant of heavy magnesium oxide is more stronger, slowly and persistent. Meanwhile it can not produce carbon dioxide. When reacted with gastric acid, it will generate magnesium chloride, and Release the magnesium ions, so that to stimulate the intestinal peristalsis, playing the effect of laxative. It is suitable for constipation associated with hyperacidity, gastric and duodenal ulcer patients.
Light Magnesium Oxide
Property: White& amorphous powder, odorless, tasteless and non-toxic. Specific gravity 3.58(25), Melting point 2852, Boiling point 3600. Formula is MgO, Molecular weight 40.31.
Applications: on the one hand, it is used in the production of metallurgy, smelting, senior magnesite brick, refractory and moisturizing materials, on the other hand, it is also widely used in rubber, rubber sheet, rubber products, pharmaceutical industry, food industry, plastic sheet accelerator, plasticizer and silicon steel glass surface coating paint, paper production, ball polished, leather treatment, insulation materials, oils, dyes, ceramics, desiccant, resins, flame retardants and other industries.
