The effects of calcination temperature of this low-grade magnesite on the composition, BET surface area and phosphate reactivity of the resulting magnesia powder were studied. The 4-point flexural strength of resulting MKPC was measured for all calcined raw material fractions that produced a solid. Based on the strength measurement results, the optimal range for calcination resided between 700 °C and 1150 °C, which is drastically lower than commonly recommended for finer magnesia sources in MKPCs.

The presence of impurity silicates and high iron content in all the constituent minerals was posed as the reason for densification and loss of reactivity at higher calcination temperatures.",
