There are lots of kinds of magnesium oxide. During sales process, it need to classify according to the customers’ products. For example, light magnesium oxide, reactive magnesium oxide, high pure magnesium oxide, etc. Some people become puzzled, and do not know the relationship between magnesium oxide and light magnesium oxide. Therefore, let us talk about what is light magnesium oxide?
The light magnesium oxide is a subclass of magnesium oxide, white light loose and amorphous form powder, stinkless and tasteless. Light magnesium oxide’s volume is about the three times of heavy magnesium oxide. When be exposed to the air, it is easy to absorb water and carbon dioxide, is not soluble in water and alcohol, and soluble in dilute acid.
The light magnesium oxide is mainly used for the production of rubber goods and CR adhesives. In the rubber manufacturing, magnesium oxide plays a role of acid-acceptor and accelerant. In the ceramics and enamel, it can reduce sintering temperature. What’s more, it can be used as stuffing bulking agent in the grinding wheel and oil paint. In the medicines, magnesium oxide can be applied as antacid and laxative purgative to treat hyperchlorhydria, the stomach and duodenum ulcer. During food processing, it can be brightener and decolorising agent.
