Talc in Detergents Industry

Talcum powder is used in detergents and it is also used industrially in sewage treatment plants for water purification. This powder is one of the main components of laundry powder and detergent liquids that increase the washing efficiency of detergents based on surfactants. With the help of talcum powder, manufacturers deactivate the hard ions of the washing solution (calcium and magnesium) and prevent their reaction with surfactants. Magnesium oxide is one of the practical chemical compounds that is formed by the bond between two elements magnesium and oxygen. Magnesium oxide is used in various industrial, edible and laboratory grades. This chemical substance is extracted in a natural and mineral form from minerals including talc. More than 32% of the mass weight of Hanaakia talc is composed of magnesium oxide. Magnesium oxide is considered to be one of the solid compounds that has a powdery state and is seen in white color. This chemical compound is very reactive. In such a way that it can easily react with water and produce a chemical called magnesium hydroxide. The chemical substance in question is an odorless and non-toxic compound and does not pose any danger to humans. For this reason, it is used in food, medicine, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and health industries.

This chemical compound reaches its boiling point at a temperature equal to 3600 degrees Celsius and its melting point at a temperature equal to 2852 degrees Celsius. Magnesium oxide is a material that is very resistant to heat and high temperature and is considered one of the refractory materials for applications in cosmetics, hygiene and detergent industries. This type of chemicals used in cosmetics creates consistency in products and is used to increase viscosity, absorb water and oil from the environment and act as a thickening agent. The purpose of using cosmetic products is often to create more color or change the tone. For this reason, it is necessary to have different pigments in cosmetic products. These pigments are classified into two categories: organic, which have carbon-based molecules, and inorganic, which are metal oxides. Inorganic metal oxide pigments are usually duller than organic pigments, but they are more resistant to heat and light and their color lasts longer.
