Physical properties of Limestone
Physically, Limestone are Quite impervious, Hard, Compact, fine to very fine grained calcareous rocks of sedimentary nature.
|Hardness||3 to 4 on Moh’s Scale|
|Density||2.5 to 2.65 Kg/m3|
|Compressive Strength||1800 to 2100 Kg/cm2|
|Water Absorption||Less than 1%|
Chemical properties of Limestone
Chemically, both limestone and marbles are siliceous calcium carbonate rocks.
|Other Oxides like Na, Mg||1.5 to 2.5%|
|Loss On Ignition (LOI)||30-32%|
Limestone, like marble and other calcareous stones, are referred to as acid sensitive. Calcareous stones are readily dissolved in acid, therefore acidic products should not be used on limestone and marbles.
