|PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF LIMESTONE
|Physically, Limestone are Quite
impervious, Hard, Compact, fine to very fine grained calcareous
rocks of sedimentary nature.
||3 to 4 on Moh's Scale
||2.5 to 2.65 Kg/m3
||1800 to 2100 Kg/cm2
||Less than 1%
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)
|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.
