Magnesium hydroxide industry transforms and upgrades from quantity to quality

At present, more than 90% of my country’s magnesium hydroxide is used in the production of low value-added products such as flame retardants and fillers, guarding gold resources but not bringing gold benefits. Hebei Messi Biology Co., Ltd. said that only by shifting magnesium hydroxide application research to the development of high value-added products and upgrading the magnesium hydroxide industry from quantity to quality can we truly get rid of the development model of low-priced resources.

Magnesium hydroxide is a rare non-metallic mineral resource that enjoys a good reputation because it is widely used in environmental protection, chemical industry, papermaking, tanning, medicine, automobiles, agriculture and other fields. After simple processing such as separation and purification of the mined brucite, natural raw materials can be obtained. As a scarce mineral resource, it is only used as a raw material for low value-added products, far from its characteristics as a high-tech material, which is a waste of resources.

Magnesium hydroxide is not just a flame retardant

The quality of magnesium hydroxide varies. High-quality magnesium hydroxide should be modified first, and then used in a precise amount to achieve a large effect like MSG. Adding deeply processed magnesium hydroxide to medicines and foods can significantly increase its effects. In this way, high-grade ores can be utilized in high-value applications, while low-grade ores can still be used in conventional fields such as rubber and plastics. At present, magnesium hydroxide has been used in related applications in medicine, food and other fields, and breakthroughs are expected to be achieved in the next 2 to 3 years, which will drive technological upgrades in related industries.

Japan is at the forefront of the world in the utilization and development of magnesium hydroxide, with a series of products covering more than 100 application fields. There are only more than a dozen application fields in our country, and the technical content of the products is low. The market price is 10 times different from similar foreign products, and the number of patents held is also far lower than abroad. Relying on scientific research institutions such as the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Hebei Messi Biology Co., Ltd. has developed medical and food-grade magnesium hydroxide products. Magnesium hydroxide is added to medicine, food, cosmetics, and health products, and is expected to replace other higher-cost chemical raw materials in some fields. , the product has now been put on the market.
