Marble powder is a waste product formed during the production of marble. A large quantity of powder is generated during the cutting process. The result is that about 25% of the original marble mass is lost in the form of dust.
It is also known as calcium carbonate, a chemical compound with the formula CaCO3. At room temperature, it is a white slightly soluble in water solid, which imparts a slightly basic reaction.
Marble Powder is made from calcium carbonate and is white in colour. The granularities of Marble powder can vary from 0 to 400 microns. It is a solid waste material generated from marble processing and can be used either as a filler material in cement or fine aggregates while preparing concrete. Marble powder can be used as an admixture in concrete, so that strength of the concrete can be increased.
Powdered Marble Dust can be used to make acrylic modeling paste, glue base gesso, and all water and oil-dispersed paints as well as to create a textured surface for drawing. It is made from pH-neutral basic calcium carbonate.
