Our soluble magnesium additives have been found effective in scavenging these acidic materials due to its high reserve alkalinity

For many plastics such as PVC, acids formed during manufacture have a deleterious effect. In some cases these acidic materials lead to a darkening of the plastic. Liquid Minerals Group LTD.’s oil soluble magnesium additives have been found effective in scavenging these acidic materials due to its high reserve alkalinity.

Magnesium and zinc are both used in rubber formulations to control scorch and cure rates. These are both solids of course which can introduce some handling and mixing problems. Laboratory testing of Liquid Minerals Group LTD.’s magnesium and zinc have shown improved rubber properties with the use of these products in place of magnesium and zinc. This is most likely due to the very much smaller size of the liquid formulations which allows for more intimate mixing with other components.
