Raw Magnesite

Raw Magnesite is the naturally occurring Carbonate of Magnesium (MgCO3), found in two different physical forms, Crystalline (Spathic) and Cryptocrystalline (Amorphous, compact). The Magnesite mined is of cryptocrystalline nature, which is much purer than the crystalline form and usually off-white in colour due to silica content.

Applications


  • Production of Dead Burnt Magnesite,
  • Production of Caustic Calcined Magnesite
  • In the fields of Chemicals, Fertilisers, Animal Feeds, Mosaic Industry, Pharma-Chemicals, etc.
