A safe and cost-effective alternative to the use of sodium hydroxide [caustic soda, NaOH]
for wastewater alkalinity and pH adjustment

AMALGAM-60 is a proprietary, concentrated aqueous suspension of magnesium hydroxide (hydrated lime of magnesia – Mg(OH)₂) produced from calcined, high purity, natural magnesite. This product is manufactured in Washington state using a proprietary blend of dispersants that result in optimum storage stability and reactivity.

AMALGAM-60 provides a highly reactive source of magnesium hydroxide (Mg(OH)2) for use in chemical processing, water treatment, and wastewater treatment applications. AMALGAM-60 offers a safe, non-hazardous means of effective acid neutralization, coagulation, H₂S and heavy metals removal in wastewater and process streams.

AMALGAM-60 (60% Mg(OH)2) has a higher neutralizing value per pound than any other alkaline additive.  This translates into a 40% reduction in chemical usage when compared with caustic soda, while being significantly safer for operators to handle and more nutritive for the microorganisms being maintained – making it the most cost-effective option.
