VYAZMA, Russia—Russian Mining Chemical Co. L.L.C. will expand its range of high-grade magnesium compounds and start the production of high active magnesium oxide.
The products will be manufactured at its recently opened third processing plant in Vyazma, and will be sold under the MagPro trademark, according a company news release.
MagPro is manufactured on a new calcination line, constructed in Germany, with a capacity of 7,500 metric tons annually. The final commissioning will take place this month. In Europe, Middle East, North Africa, India and North America, the product will be distributed by RMCC's exclusive partner company, Europiren B.V.
Micronized grades of magnesium oxide are most widely used in the production of halogen-containing synthetic rubbers. MagPro is used as an inhibitor of premature polymerization, an acid acceptor during the production of synthetic rubber.
Because of MagPro's mineral source of brucite, it does not contain any volatiles like chlorides and sulphates.
