Magnesium Chips & Granules

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