Referring to the problems encountered with rocks in tropical country, this study was carried out to characterise the engineering properties of granite and limestone found in the Kuala Lumpur area. Samples of granite and limestone were taken from a number of places where the borehole drilling for site investigation works is on progress.
Chalk is made up of limestone, which will simulate a statue. Limestone contains calcium carbonate (CaCO3), which will react chemically with the acid, causing it to deteriorate or erode. This happens because the acid causes the calcium (Ca) and carbonate (CO3) in the limestone to separate into calcium and carbon dioxide gas (CO2).
Our showroom is located in North Es on the A1017 at New England, just outside Haverhill and a short drive from Halstead. If you are wondering why we are called 'Cut Maple Fires Stoves,' this is because our original showroom was located between the villages of Gosfield and Sible Hedingham in an area known as Cut Maple.
