Magnesium Oxide Media - Highly Aggressive pH Corrective Media (50 Pound Bag) Magnesium Dihydrogen Phosphate binder. A new method for combining magnesium oxide, MgO, and magnesium dihydrogen phosphate to form an inexpensive compactible ceramic to stabilize very low solubility metal oxides, ashes, swarfs, and other iron or metal-based additives, to create products and waste forms which can be poured or dye cast, and to reinforce and strengthen the ceramics formed by the addition of fibers to the initial ceramic mixture.

Issues with Magnsium Oxide Cement. Comment: ( Mike Collins Biotectures ) Thin shell fabric structure with ceramicrete-paper insulation and the final another layer of the marble like ceramicrete think very long term-very organic shapes.... beyond latex cement.... the ceramic edge - wont burn or expand and contract...

Issues with Magnsium Oxide Cement

I can see a dome with ceramic fabric tech cured in 30 minutes and finishing touches in two more hours and sealed and ready for living....a pneumatic form is needed that can be used 30-40 times ... My building system has a footprint not involving the horrors of getting cut by metal lath ... we use burlap and fishing net fine half inch the sardine type and use pipe or rebar... the small amount of metal this keeps costs way down... now I am achieving square foot costs of pneumatic buildings that take hours to erect and require half the cost and half the human time that earthbag dome with the ferrocement roof could have come off with probably half as much time in cost. ... A: Excellent for domes.
