Magnesium sulfate reaction
I am working on glass and I am putting magnesium sulfate in the glass
but my dad is concerned that it might blow up in our faces. Is this
I am not aware of any danger if I correctly understand your
question. I have purchased various forms of magnesium sulfate
in glass bottles. Most companies now sell it in plastic
because of the lowered cost and shipping weight. Now there might
be a danger if you're putting magnesium sulfate directly into
molten glass. Post your question for the chemistry section.
Hope this helps. And, always wear glasses when in the shop or lab!
