Where to find us in Breitenau
Magnifin, part of the Huber Advanced Materials business, built a magnesium oxide processing unit in its plant at Breitenau, Austria, in 1971. Thanks to a chemical recycling process, the company was able to use a magnesium-rich residue from dust separators to make pure magnesium oxide.
In the 1980s, extensive R&D work was carried out on the development of high-quality magnesium hydroxides for fire retardant and fine chemical applications. At the end of 1988, Magnifin signed a cooperation agreement with Martinswerk GmbH, the world’s leading supplier of aluminum hydroxide-based flame retardants.
The company opened its new magnesium hydroxide plant in September 1991. Fifteen years later, Magnifin doubled its production capacity. The current manufacturing program features magnesium hydroxide, magnesium oxide, sodium silicate and silica with a variety of specifications for customers throughout the world.
