What will become of chalk manufactured?

Chalk was produced until well over 100 years ago mainly from naturally occurring gypsum. Gypsum was and still is the basic material for chalk production in Germany, Austria and the Scandinavian countries. Even today, more than half of those sold in Germany exist chalk made of plaster. In France, naturally occurring so-called champagne chalk is used for the production of chalk and artisan chalk. Champagne chalk is made of chalk and is a chemically very pure calcium carbonate. Champagne chalk is considered very high quality. Increasingly, chalk today is made from magnesia. The same white powder Turner uses.

A transparent surface coating in the grip area ensures that the chalk does not transfer to the fingers. This chalk is a high quality and dust free chalk.

What is the advantage of dust-free chalk?

Chalk dust is created especially when wiping a chalk board with a dry cloth. The dust is suspected of causing respiratory and pulmonary problems under unfavorable conditions. In addition, the chalk dust for most allergic people is at least disturbing and unpleasant. For this reason, dust-free chalk is increasingly being developed and sold.

Why does chalk occasionally squeak – is there chalk that does not squeak?

The high-frequency and perceived by most people as unpleasant squeaking is caused by the so-called stick-slip effect. Stick-slip means that the chalk sticks to the board when writing in quick succession and then jumps a little further. As a result, the chalk may begin to vibrate and the squeaking can be heard. The squeaking can be prevented by grasping when writing or breaking the chalk into two shorter pieces. So far, no creaking chalk has been developed.

As a rule, hardly anything can be wrong when choosing a suitable chalk. Mostly the price is the decisive criterion for the choice of a certain chalk mark. If you like a high-quality chalk with a uniform typeface, you can use the champagne chalk. The purchase of a dust-free chalk is recommended for allergy sufferers and, in general, for anyone who does not want to cause chalk dust for health reasons or to avoid dusting the surrounding area around the board.
