Magnesium oxide includes a lot. Therefore, it would be classified according to customers’ products in the process of sales. For example, light magnesium oxide, active magnesium oxide, high purity magnesium oxide and so on. This makes many customers confused. They can not distinguish the relationship of magnesium oxide and light magnesium oxide. Therefore, let’s learn about what is light magnesium oxide?
The light magnesium oxide is one of the small classification in the magnesia, it is white light and loose shapeless powder, and colorless and tasteless, non-toxic. The volume of light is about three times as the heavy magnesium oxide. It is very easy to absorb water and carbon dioxide. It is insoluble in water and alcohol. However, it can form corresponding magnesium salt solution when it mixes with dilute acids.
The light magnesium oxide is major used in rubber product and the production of neoprene adhesive. In the rubber manufacturing, it plays the role of the acid accepter and the accelerating agent. In the chloroprene adhesive, the effect of it is sulfurization crosslinking agent, anti-scorching agent and resin chelation. Magnesium oxide can reduce the sintering temperature in the ceramic and porcelain enamel. In the production of grinding wheel and oil paint, it is always regarded as filler. In the medicine, it is usually used as antacid and aperient to treating too much stomach acid and the stomach and duodenum ulcer. In the food processing, it can be used as the brightening agent and the decolorant of hard sugar purification. In addition, it also can be used in glass fiber reinforced plastics, electronic industry, insulation material industry, petroleum additive, and the industries of casting, phenolic plastic and so on.
