Abstract:   (713 Views)
Huntite and hydromagnesite are flame retardant materials that help to extinguish in the early stages of fire and prevent the dispersion of the flame even if it is started. They have been used as additives in the polymeric composites as high percentages, such as 50-60%. Due to this usage of huge amount of mineral powders, some of the composite properties are devolved, for instance heaviness. In this study, by enriching the minerals, it was aimed to decrease the huntite and hydromagnesite quantity by eliminating the impurity content to reinforce the polymer composites. The wetting property was intensively studied as a function of the particle size distribution and overarching of this to beneficiation of the minerals. To observe the wetting behaviour, the contact angle measurements were carried out. Froth flotation method was used to provide the separation phenomena between the huntite and hydromagnesite minerals and associated impurities. To perform the phase analysis, surface morphology and elemental analysis of the huntite ore, X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) were used. © 2016 The Authors.
