Calcium Carbonate - 20 kg

Quick Overview

Carbonate is the preferred media for many granite, marble, masonry and limestone-based cleaning or restoration projects in Europe and is now available here in Australia. Calcium Carbonate chemical structure is identical to these types of building materials, making it completely compatible with these substrates. Carbonate does not contain any salts, eliminating any risk of efflorescence, and is classified as a soft media, so will not harm even the most delicate surfaces. Carbonate granules are rounded, allowing it to perform very delicate cleaning operations without risk of damage occurring.


Note: For Australia Purchases or Orders a 10% GST will be added.
