Magnesium Hydroxide Nanoparticles / Nanopowder 20wt% Water Dispersion
Magnesium hydroxide nanopowder is used industrially as a non-hazardous alkali to neutralize acidic wastewaters. It also takes part in the bio rock method of building artificial reefs. 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): Mg(OH)2 → MgO + H2O. The heat absorbed by the reaction acts as a retardant by delaying the ignition of the associated substance. The water released dilutes any combustible gases and inhibits oxygen from aiding the combustion. Common uses of magnesium hydroxide as a fire retardant include plastics, roofing, and coatings. Another mineral that is used in similar fire retardant applications is hydromagnesite. Also, magnesium hydroxide nanopowder is used for folk remedies.
