Paints and coating
Calcium carbonate can significantly improve paint properties such as gloss, opacity (covering power) and wear resistance. Natural calcium carbonate has an alkaline pH-value and low oil absorption. This important combination of properties is ideal for primers.
Calcium carbonate has
become an appropriate component for top or finishing coats as well, where high gloss and gloss retention are demanded
Calcium carbonate powder is one of the most popular and essential fillers used in the plastic industry for various purposes. Calcium carbonate improves the basic properties of PVC by adding stiffness to the polymer matrix and improving impact resistance as particle sizes become smaller. Calcium carbonate also reduces the cost of PVC compounds by substituting the PVC resin which is an expensive material.
calcium carbonate powder is used as a filler in paper industry. the composition of paper rate from 10% to 20%. It create high whiteness. Neutralize acid environment in the paper industry. Fillers help whiter paper products, with opacity, gloss, good printing capability, competitive prices. Reduce the amount of wood, reducing costs while ensuring the durability of paper. Papermaking machines operate faster with fast-drying paper which saving energy.
PP & PE filler
calcium carbonate is used in PP and PE filler to reduce the cost by replacing high-cost polymer with low price filler. Egyptian calcium carbonate has moderate hardness, making it easy to process and consume less power.
adhesives and sealants
ground calcium carbonates can be used as a filler at high loadings in adhesives and sealant industry. It improves rheological properties, improves whiteness & opacity and generate cost savings.
▶ Calcium carbonate is a primary component of agriculture, also known as agricultural lime, which is used for neutralizing acidic soil and to enhance soil quality. ▶ natural lime when added to soil, acts as a rich source of calcium for plants and increases the pH and water-retaining capacity of acidic soils. ▶ It is a rich source of calcium, and is beneficial for the crops. Also, it enhances the consumption of essential plant nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium in acidic soils. ▶ Industrial coatings are primarily used for protection against potentially adverse environmental conditions, with the focus on durability
