Messi’s MagChem® product line offers a variety of chemistries and physical properties to meet a multitude of industrial applications worldwide. The high purity and consistency of the MagChem products offer superior performance in a broad range of applications such as:
For leather tanning applications, MagChem 10 CR provides a consistent and controlled rate of pH increase allowing the chrome to uniformly penetrate leather hides to react completely with the collagen and thus prevent staining. A single addition of MagChem 10 CR at the beginning of the chrome basifying step requires less labor compared to sodium- or calcium-based alkalis. In addition, neutralized chrome contains water soluble magnesium sulfate, which is not detrimental to leather.
Drilling Fluids and Cements
MagChem 10 or MagChem P98 Pulverized can be added to Portland cement to make a tighter seal for down well drilling holes. After Portland cement is set, MagChem magnesium oxide hydrates and expands providing a tight bond between the ground and pipe insert. MagChem light burned magnesium oxide products can be used as a viscosity modifier in drilling muds.
Other industrial applications for MagChem products include:
- Building products
- Dental investments
- Fuel additives
- Magnesium salts
- Refractory and steelmaking
- Road patching cement
- Silica removal
- Sugar refining
- Glass fiber reinforced plastics FRP; GRP; SMC
