MAGNESIUM DERIVATIVES

This wide range of magnesium oxide, magnesium hydroxide and magnesium carbonate products are manufactured either by ‘Aman process’ or ‘Pattinson process’ . These products are low in impurities such as lead and other metals present in magnesia derived from conventional precipitation processes. They also have exceptionally high purity and tightly controlled physical parameters.
