Calcite / Calcium Carbonate
Details

Calcium carbonate products are available in a wide range of sizes. They are produced by grinding limestone and by precipitation. The precipitation process can produce true nanoparticles of calcium carbonate (defined as less than 100 nanometers or 0.1 micron) whereas the grinding process is typically limited to an average particle size of around 1 micron. Titanium dioxide is used as a white pigment and UV stabilizer. Calcined clay goes into wire and cable formulations where it improves electrical properties. The remaining fillers find their role in a variety of specialty applications.
