Magnesium Chloride

Univar Solutions is the premier distributor of magnesium chloride in the United States

Magnesium chloride is a chemical compound with the formula MgCl2 and its various hydrates MgCl2(H2O)x. Anhydrous MgCl2 contains 25.5% elemental magnesium by mass. These salts are typical ionic halides, being highly soluble in water. The hydrated magnesium chloride can be extracted from brine or sea water. In North America, magnesium chloride is produced primarily from Great Salt Lake brine. It is extracted in a similar process from the Dead Sea in the Jordan Valley. 

As the natural mineral bischofite, Magnesium chloride is also extracted (by solution mining) out of ancient seabeds such as the Zechstein seabed in northwest Europe. Some magnesium chloride is made from solar evaporation of seawater. Anhydrous magnesium chloride is the principal precursor to magnesium metal, which is produced on a large scale. While, hydrated magnesium chloride is the form most readily available.

Univar Solutions is here to serve all your magnesium chloride needs with an offering that includes various forms and grades.  Given our strategic relationships with all major producers worldwide, we provide you fast and reliable service offering just-in-time delivery in bulk, totes, bags and drums.
