The production process of liquid gymnastics chalk is mainly divided into the above steps. Through these steps, liquid gymnastics chalk that meets the requirements can be produced.
Raw material preparation
The main raw material of liquid gymnastics chalk is magnesium carbonate, and other additives include water, alcohol, adhesives, etc. The purity requirement of magnesium carbonate is not less than 99.9%, and the purity requirement of water is not less than 99.0%.
Magnesium carbonate is the main component of liquid gymnastics chalk, which has hygroscopic and anti-slip properties. Water is the solvent for liquid gymnastics chalk, which dissolves the magnesium carbonate and other additives together. Alcohol can be used as a solvent and as a preservative. Binders increase the viscosity of liquid chalk, making it easier to apply.
Mix magnesium carbonate and other additives in a certain proportion and stir evenly. The ratio of ingredients affects the performance of liquid chalk. Generally speaking, the higher the proportion of magnesium carbonate, the stronger the hygroscopicity of the liquid chalk and the better the slip resistance. The higher the water ratio, the less viscous the liquid chalk will be, making it easier to apply. The higher the proportion of alcohol, the better the antiseptic properties of the liquid chalk. The higher the ratio of binder, the more viscous the liquid chalk will be.
Heat and dissolve the mixed materials in an electric furnace, and control the temperature at 60-80°C. If the dissolving temperature is too high, the liquid chalk will deteriorate, and if the temperature is too low, the liquid chalk will be difficult to dissolve.
Filter the dissolved liquid to remove impurities. Filtration improves the quality of liquid chalk and makes it more uniform.
Simply fill the filtered liquid into bottles or jars. When filling, pay attention to sealing to prevent liquid chalk from evaporating.
The production process of liquid gymnastics chalk is relatively simple, but it also requires strict quality control. Through strict production processes, liquid gymnastics chalk that meets the requirements can be produced to provide gymnasts with a better grip.
