LKAB Minerals produces MagnaDense from own resources, ensuring long-term availability and consistent quality. The product is harmless to the environment, non-toxic in all its forms and sustainable.

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.

Watch our movie below to understand how easy it is to mix MagnaDense with cement and water to create heavy concrete that can be used as counterweight here:

Bridges, elevators, and other counterweight applications
