Magnesium chloride Exporters, Manufacturers, Suppliers in Nairobi Kenya.

Kenya Chemical is one of the leading Magnesium chloride Exporters, Manufacturers, Suppliers, and Producers in Nairobi, Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, Congo, South Africa, South Sudan, Zambia, Nigeria, Namibia, Ghana, Malawi Nairobi Kenya.



Magnesium chloride is mainly used to make magnesium metal, as a disinfectant, fire extinguishing agent, and ice salt refrigerant, and also used in ceramics, textiles, paper making, and other industries. Magnesium chloride solution is mixed with magnesium oxide in a certain proportion, commonly known as magnesia cement, which is hard and wear-resistant. For example, artificial marble and particleboard can be made by adding wood chips and wood shavings as fillers. Magnesium chloride can be mixed with magnesia to be used as the lining of a steelmaking furnace. Magnesium chloride is contained in seawater and bittern. It can be prepared by reacting magnesium oxide or magnesite.


Used to make magnesium metal, disinfectant, fire extinguishing agent, frozen brine, ceramics, and used to fill fabrics and make paper; Curing agent; Nutritional fortifier; Flavoring agent (combined with magnesium sulfate, salt, calcium hydrogen phosphate, calcium sulfate, etc.); Yeast AIDS such as Japanese sake; Water remover (for fish cake, the dosage is 0.05% ~ 0.1%); Tissue improver (used in combination with polyphosphates as an elastic enhancer for minced fish products). Because of strong bitterness, the commonly used amount is less than 0.1%.

Specific Usage:    For Biological Purpose, For Tissue Medium Purpose, For Microbiological, For Microscopic Purpose, For Electron Microscopy, For Lens Blooming, Technical Grade, Practical Use, Pro Analysis, Super Special Grade, For Synthesis, For Scintillation, For Electrophoresis Use, For Refractive Index

Magnesium chloride CAS 7786-30-3 application:

Magnesium chloride is mainly used to make metal magnesium, as a disinfectant, fire extinguishing agent, ice salt refrigerant, and also used in ceramics, textiles, papermaking, and other industries. Magnesium chloride solution is mixed with magnesium oxide in a certain proportion, commonly known as magnesia cement, which is hard and wear-resistant. If wood chips and shavings are added as fillers, they can be made into artificial marble, particleboard, etc. Mixing magnesium chloride with magnesia can be used as a steelmaking furnace lining. Both seawater and bittern contain magnesium chloride. It can be prepared by reacting with magnesia or magnesite and hydrochloric acid.

Dust and erosion control
Magnesium chloride is one of many substances used for dust control, soil stabilization, and wind erosion mitigation. When magnesium chloride is applied to roads and bare soil areas, both positive and negative performance issues occur which are related to many application factors.

Catalyst support
Ziegler-Natta catalysts used commercially to produce polyolefins, contain MgCl2 as catalyst support.  The introduction of MgCl2 supports increases the activity of traditional catalysts and allowed the development of highly stereospecific catalysts for the production of polypropylene.

Ice control
Magnesium chloride is used for low-temperature de-icing of highways, sidewalks, and parking lots. When highways are treacherous due to icy conditions, magnesium chloride helps to prevent the ice bond to the pavement, allowing snow plows to clear the roads more efficiently.

Magnesium chloride is used in three ways for pavement ice control: Anti-icing, when maintenance professionals spread it onto roads before a snowstorm to prevent snow from sticking and ice from forming; prewetting, which means a liquid formulation of magnesium chloride is sprayed directly onto salt as it is being spread onto roadway pavement, wetting the salt so that it sticks to the road; and pretreating, when magnesium chloride and salt are mixed together before they are loaded onto trucks and spread onto paved roads. Calcium chloride damages concrete twice as fast as magnesium chloride. It should be noticed that the amount of magnesium chloride is supposed to be controlled when it is used for de-icing as it may cause pollution to the environment.

Nutrition and medicine

Magnesium chloride is used in nutraceutical and pharmaceutical preparations.

Magnesium chloride (E511) is an important coagulant used in the preparation of tofu from soy milk.

In Japan, it is sold as nigari ( derived from the Japanese word for "bitter"), a white powder produced from seawater after the sodium chloride has been removed, and the water evaporated. In China, it is called lushui .

Nigari or Iushui is, in fact, natural magnesium chloride, meaning that it is not completely refined (it contains up to 5% magnesium sulfate and various minerals). The crystals originate from lakes in the Chinese province of Qinghai, to be then reworked in Japan. Millions of years ago, this region was home to an ancient ocean that gradually dried up and of which only salty lakes with brackish water saturated with salt where magnesium chloride crystallizes remain today.
