Reasons of price increasing of electric fused magnesia as follows:
Firstly, there is a severe shortage of resources in Magnesite Mine. The exploitation of raw ore is restricted and prohibited from leaving the country. The explosives are stopped. The government forbids any magnesite mining in any methods, so that the mining equipment are stopped.
Secondly, government environmental protection supervision found that magnesium ore production industry have many problems, the government requires rectification, more leading to resource tensions.
Thirdly, refractory material electric used magnesia is used for EAF, whose consumables are graphite electrode, whose price is very high. The above factors have contributed to the recent surge in the price of electric fused magnesia.
