Physical and chemical characteristics

Flotation frother Florrea MIBC -Methyl Isobutyl Carbinol is Colorless transparent liquid with characteristic odor . Methyl Isobutyl Carbinol is miscible with most ordinary organic solvent. Chemical properties of Methyl Isobutyl Carbinol is stable. It has high content of active ingredients.

Storage and transportation

Keep away from wet, fire and sunshine. To avoid decomposing, don't use for acid pump. When opening the bag, keep away from any warm object. Wear ocular and anti-toxin respirator to protect your skin, eye and no nasality. In case of contact, wash immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes


4-Methyl-2-pentanol (IUPAC name) or methyl isobutyl carbinol (MIBC) is an organicchemical compound used primarily as a flotation frother for mineral flotation in mineral processing industry .

MIBC(Methyl Isobutyl Carbinol) is an excellent chemical mining reagent used as foaming reagent both for non-ferrous metal and non-metallic ores in mineral flotation process.

Methyl isobutyl carbinol (MIBC) is mainly used in the flotation plant of non-ferrous oxide ores or fine-grained sulfide ores containing a large quantity of soil grade

It is widely applied in flotation treatment of lead-zinc ore, copper- molybdenum, copper-gold ore and mineral processing of copper-gold ore . Methyl isobutyl carbinol (MIBC) has particular effect on improving the quality of concentrate and efficiency of mine recovery.

Florrea can provide full range of flotation frothers which is well-suited to enhancing frother performance. Florrea mining frothers is suitable for Mineral processing of base metal sulphides, precious metals (gold, silver, PGEs), industrial minerals, coal and various other non-sulphides.In developing 'frother' products our aim has been to improve flotation kinetics by influencing the induction time for solid/bubble contact. More rapid loading of hydrophobic particles into the froth phase is required in order to reduce gangue entrainment. Through the development of products that limit water recovery whilst maintaining froth mobility, we have been able show improvements in grade and/or recovery
