Limestone

 

LIMESTONE ( CALCIUM CARBONATES )

The very pure limestone located in Sammalut formation Elminea governorate 200 km south Cairo, this formation has the high purity due to the microfossiles which lived in the past on the marine environment ( biological depositions ). Whiteness degree not less than 90% and the chemical purity of Ca CO3 99.9% min. LIMESTONE ( CALCIUM CARBONATES )

  • Feldspar is used in various industries, but it is mainly used in thermal industries such as in the making of pottery, porcelain, faience, glass and metal painting through functioning enamel. A little amount of it, not more than 10 %, is used for other purposes like the filling materials, painting and for the making of some sorts of soap. Silica sand for glass, Silica sand for crystal, Silica sand for foundry, Silica sand for painting, Silica Sand for oil and gas ,Silica Sand for Stamped concrete ,Silica Sand for water filtration ,Silica Sand for gulf Course, Silica Sand for water treatment, Silica sand for plastering ,Silica Sand for sand plastering and for many many uses.etc Talc is used for different purposes and the usage of it is limited to the type of the material and the level of its quality. It is used in the making of paints, papers, pottery, ceramics, insecticides, textiles, cosmetics, soap, rubber and greasing. It can also be mixed up with asbestos to make boards and coat walls. Dolomite is calcium – magnesium carbonates, located in Egypt at Sadat area 30 km south Suez governorate and Ataqa area in Suez. There are 3 types of dolomite: industrial dolomite, construction dolomite and steal dolomite. Quartz is the rock known under the name of el Marw. It is named after the metal that makes it to signify its blocking nature. The bigger part of it is used in the production of iron ingots (ferrosilicon ingot). The ground material is used in the making of ceramics, but as for the transparent quartz, it is used for electronic purposes and radar as well as optics since certain types of it produce lenses, slices and light prisms.
                           
    Home Contact Us Site Map Aswan is regarded as one of the most famous places where granite exists and is used as an ornament stone. Egyptian granite takes its fame for the beauty of its colors. There are pink red, dark red (Aswan granite), gray and black granites. It is also possible to extract big blocks of it free of cracks. The ancient Egyptians used it in the making of obelisks, statues and other monuments. Marble is found in the shape of layers annexed to the schist rocks that exist adjacent to the serpentine rocks. Marble takes colors ranging from white, yellow to black including gray. Sandstone is found in the shape of layers that range in thickness. It consists of adjacent granules distinguished for its various colors as including iron oxides. Sandstone is used in construction activities, coating Nile bridges, making millstones, whetting weapons and sometimes is used for décor. Mines and Quarries
