High purity magnesium enhances performance per unit of weight in building and construction products

  • Hydrated magnesium carbonate and magnesium oxide can be utilised to manufacture innovative building boards with advanced properties, including
    • Flame resisting wall boards and cladding
    • Low density boards, significantly lighter in weight offering engineering advantages
    • Boards with favourable acoustic properties
    • Insulating building boards and tiles.
  • Hard burned magnesia flame proofing and functional filler including foam admixtures in insulation.
  • Magnesium oxide in building sealants, paints, coatings and adhesives, acts as a curing agent and substantially increases albedo, offering a highly reflective surface and commensurate building energy savings in hot environments.
  • Caustic calcined magnesia and magnesium chloride as major ingredients in Sorel Cements for industrial flooring.
  • Hard burned magnesia in fast setting properties in road patching cements.
