Calcium Carbonate | ArrMaz - Calcium carbonate
Calcium carbonate is generally mined as limestone or marble depending on application. Its chemical impurities, size distribution and physical makeup dictate its end use. Calcium carbonate is mined for use in the paper and paint industries as a filler and coating agent, and in plastics for extending polymers and reducing costs.In adhesives and sealants, finely ground calcium carbonates can be used at high loadings where they improve rheological properties, improve whiteness and opacity and generate cost savings. In industry, Imerys limes are valued raw materials and process enablers for the steel industry, sugar industry, water treatment and the building industry.
