MagnaDense is used for the production of counterweights

More weight, less volume to match your counterweight design

When you are looking to design a consistent counterweight selecting MagnaDense as the high density material is the right choice. We are able to supply a range of MagnaDense products to match your requirement whether your counterweight is small or large we can supply your high density aggregate needs.
MagnaDense in concrete can provide a density of typically 4.0 t/m3. When mixed with other iron based materials, concrete including MagnaDense can achieve a density up to 5.0 t/m3.
