Cales de Llierca is the leading producer of coated and uncoated Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC.) Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) is the most complex product of all the products we produce: it requires special controls and in-depth knowledge of the different parameters involved in the precipitation reaction and subsequent treatments.
Precipitated Calcium Carbonate – Multifunctional Additive for PVC: Techno Brief Calcium carbonate is one of the most widely utilized minerals. Ground calcium carbonates (GCC) are used mainly as fillers, while precipitated calcium carbonates (PCC), in addition to being reinforcing fillers, can function as a processing aids and impact modifiers as well.
Precipitated Calcium Carbonate or PCC is refined, purified and synthetic calcium carbonate which has the same chemical formula, CaCO3 like other calcium carbonates of chalk, limestone and marble. PCC is produced by calcination of Limestone with the highest percentage of Calcium Carbonate with lowest amount of Silica, Iron, Magnesia and other natural impurities.
PRECIPITATED CALCIUM CARBONATE (PCC) Composition: Most PCC added to the wet end of paper machines consists almost entirely of the calcite crystal form of CaCO3. The calcite crystal can have several different macroscopic shapes. These depend on the conditions of production.
Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) is an innovative product, derived from lime, which has many industrial applications. PCC is made by hydrating high-calcium quicklime, and then reacting the resulting slurry, or “milk-of-lime”, with carbon dioxide.
Mississippi Lime precipitated calcium carbonate (CaCO 3), commonly referred to as PCC, is a bright, high purity mineral. Carbon dioxide is reacted with calcium hydroxide to form precipitated calcium carbonate with the following specific crystal morphology:
Precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) is produced by precipitating a calcium salt out of a solution under defined conditions. Normally, a filtered solution of calcium hydroxide Ca (OH) 2 (from burnt lime) is used as the calcium source. This must not contain any colored impurities.
ALBAGLOS® precipitated calcium carbonate (pcc) is a very fine, pur pcc. Its controlled particle size and symmetrical particle shape render it a functional pigment, filler, extender, reinforcer, or bodying agent, with a broad variety of applications.
