Magnesium Hydroxide Supplier - China

price: contact company for price


Magnesium hydroxide is a common component of antacids and laxatives; it interferes with the absorption of folic acid and iron. Magnesium hydroxide powder has low solubility in water, with a Ksp of 1.5×10?11; all of magnesium hydroxide that does dissolve does dissociate. Since the dissociation of this small amount of dissolved magnesium hydroxide is complete, magnesium hydroxide is considered a strong electrolyte.


1. Mg(OH)2 is used as an Magnesium hydroxide antacid to neutralize stomach acid, and as a laxative.

2. It is also used as an antiperspirant underarm deodorant. Milk of magnesia is useful against canker sores (aphthous ulcer) when used topically.

3. Magnesium hydroxide is sold for medical use as chewable tablets, capsules, and as liquids having various added flavors.

4. It is primarily used to alleviate constipation, but also to relieve indigestion and heartburn.

5. It is also used as an antacid, though more modern formulations such as Maalox combine the antimotility effects of equal concentrations of aluminum hydroxide to avoid unwanted laxative effects.

6. Magnesium hydroxide is also used as a folk remedy, applied and massaged into the scalp a few minutes before washing, to relieve symptoms of seborrhea and dandruff.

7. It is also said to be used for seborrheic dermatitis, which is a drying and flaking of the skin similar to dandruff but often occurring on the face.

8. Magnesium hydroxide powder is used industrially as a non-hazardous alkali to neutralise acidic wastewaters.

9. It also takes part in the Biorock method of building artificial reefs.

10. Solid magnesium hydroxide also has smoke suppressing and fire retarding properties. This is due to the endothermic decomposition it undergoes at 332 °C (630 °F).

11. Common uses of magnesium hydroxide as a magnesium hydroxide flame retardant include plastics, roofing, and coatings. Another mineral mixture that is used in similar fire retardant applications are natural mixtures of huntite and hydromagnesite.
