Magnesium Chips & Granules

Luxfer Magtech manufactures a wide range of Magnesium Chips & Granules for Grignard Reactions, Chemical Synthesis, Pharmaceutical, and other applications.

Magnesium chips and granules for grignard reactions, chemical synthesis and manufacturing applications

Description

Magnesium chips, also known as magnesium turnings, and granules are produced by milling standard-purity (99.8% Mg) or ultra-high-purity (99.98% Mg) magnesium ingots. The milling process can be adjusted to produce magnesium chips and granules that meet different shape, size and surface area requirements.

  • Standard purity (99.8% Mg) and ultra-high purity (99.98% Mg) grades
  • Shape, size and surface area controlled and optimized
