Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) / Light Calcium Carbonate

Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) / Light Calcium Carbonate

Light Calcium Carbonate or Precipitated Calcium Carbonates or Nano Calcium, NRS5000® provides proven quality and performance fller for the Precision Rubber, Sponge, PVC, Paper, Pharmaceutical, Printing Ink, Coatings and Liquid Fertilizer.

PCC also finds many industrial uses due to its ability to achieve small particle sizes and special crystal shapes. In rigid polyvinyl chloride (PVC), such as vinyl siding and fencing, PCC increases impact strength with some of the smaller particles able to replace expensive impact modifiers. Nano PCCs (less than 0.1 micron in size) control viscosity and sag in automotive and construction sealants, such as PVC plastisols, polysulfides, urethanes, and silicones. In paint, PCC’s unique particle shapes improve hiding and allow reductions in titanium dioxide levels.

An effective acid neutralizer, PCC is often used in calcium-based antacid tablets and liquids. Being high in calcium content, PCC enables the formulation of high dosage calcium supplements and multi-vitamin/mineral tablets. The small particle sizes and special particle shapes contribute to the development of good tasting calcium fortified foods and beverages.
