Dolomite is calcium magnesium carbonate with rhombohedral shaped crystals. It is harder and more dense than calcite, and slightly more acid resistant.

Markets for Dolomite

As a mineral, Dolomite shares many of the same properties as limestone and can be used, for example, as an extender in paints, as a filler in carpet backing compounds and thermosetting resins and in the glass industry.

We are producer of high brightness dolomite from production plants in Southwest France. We offer materials of a complete range of particle sizes, from fine particle size which is ideal for Powder Coatings, and also as a filler in thermosetting resins.
