What is Magnesium Oxide MgO made of
Magnesium Oxide MgO is composed of magnesium ions and oxygen ions. Magnesium Oxide MgO is an inorganic substance with the chemical formula MgO, which is an oxide of magnesium, an ionic compound. It is a white solid at room temperature. Magnesium Oxide MgO exists in nature in the form of periclase and is a raw material for magnesium smelting. Magnesium Oxide MgO has high refractory insulating properties. It can be transformed into crystal after high temperature burning above 1000°C, and when it rises to 1500-2000°C, it becomes dead-burned Magnesium Oxide MgO (magnesium sand) or sintered Magnesium Oxide MgO.
Application: Determination of sulfur and pyrite in coal and sulfur and arsenic in steel. Used as a standard for white pigments.
Lightweight Magnesium Oxide MgO is mainly used as a raw material for the preparation of ceramics, enamels, refractory crucibles and refractory bricks. Also used as a polisher binder, a filler for coatings, and paper, an accelerator and activator for neoprene and fluororubber. After mixing with solutions such as magnesium chloride, it can be made into Magnesium Oxide MgO water mix.
