Magnesium is an alkaline
earth metal that has the symbol Mg in the periodic
table of elements. Magnesium is a fairly strong, silvery-white, light-weight
metal (one third lighter than aluminum) that slightly tarnishes when exposed to
air. In a powder, this metal heats and ignites when exposed to moisture and
burns with a white flame. It is difficult to ignite in bulk, though it is easy
to light if it is shaved into thin strips. Once ignited, it is difficult to
We sell magnesium in three forms:
Magnesium Ribbon is a
long strip of magnesium metal about 3 millimeters wide and about 10 meters
long. Other specifications are:
- Thickness 0.03mm.
- Flammable Solid.
- Weights about 25 grams
Magnesium is a flammable metal used in
fire works and combustion experiments.
|Magnesium ribbon burns with a
bright light. Close and direct look at the flame is harmful for the eyes.
In the past magnesium flame have been used as a photography flash light.
Magnesium is also used in fireworks. Magnesium ribbon is specifically sold
for science experiments and observations.
Magnesium Strip Electrode
Magnesium Electrode is a strip of
magnesium metal about 2 centimeters wide, 12 centimeters long and 1.2
millimeters thick. It is stamped with letters MG so it can easily be
distinguished from other metal electrodes with the same size.
|Magnesium electrode is used
for electrolysis and construction of voltaic cell. It is also used for
heat conductivity, density and hardness experiments.
Magnesium Coil Electrode
Magnesium Coil Electrode is a hand made
coil of magnesium strip made specifically for construction of voltaic cells and
battery experiments such as "Salt Water Battery".
|Since the magnesium coil is
very fragile, it is being shipped in clear plastic tubes.
The length of the coil is about 10
Magnesium rod also known as magnesium
stick is Made of 99.8% MAGNESIUM and is used in making magnesium parts
and magnesium alloys. The weight is 1 lb and the dimensions are
1.3" (32mm) in diameter and 12" (300mm) in length. May be used to make
magnesium parts or magnesium alloys.
