Limestone rock - a source of high purity calcium carbonate


Few people realise the importance of Longcliffe calcium carbonates in their day to day lives. Many common household products contain our products in one form or another -- from the adhesive holding up the bathroom tiles to the plaster on the walls; from the tiles on the roof to the carpets on the floor; from the glass in the windows to the jars in the larder.
