Magnesium Chloride Flakes

DSS operates the world’s largest production of magnesium chloride, which is located within the Dead Sea Works (DSW) Complex. Each liter of Dead Sea water contains about 170 grams of magnesium chloride. Utilizing the abundance of solar energy available in DSS’s unique geological location, the waters are concentrated by solar evaporation to yield solutions containing about 420 grams per liter, or 33% concentration. This concentrated liquid is then converted into pellets or flakes through a further heating process. The end-product contains about 47% magnesium chloride supplied as stable white flakes or pellets of consistent quality.

Magnesium chloride is used in a variety of applications:

  • the formulation of abrasives
  • the manufacture of Sorel cement for industrial (“spark-free”) flooring
  • as a catalyst in textile finishing processes
  • the treatment of sewage and industrial effluents
  • special fertilizer mixture
  • animal feed mixes
  • deicing and dust control applications For further information on our deicing product please visit:  http://www.mag-icemelt.com/
