Industry

The variety of our products, especially those derived from lime, made for a wide range of sectors, are used mainly in the iron and steel industries due to large quantities used.

Continuing the value chain that begins with calcium and magnesium carbonates taken from our deposits, the products obtained after calcination, hydration, sintering and recarbonation are also present in numerous sectors.

  • Calcium and magnesium carbonates: used in the glass and ceramics industry, as well as in the production of cast iron.
  • Calcium and magnesium oxides and hydroxides: increase greatly their industrial applications in sectors such as steel, mining, paper and chemical industry among others.
  • Sintered dolomite: the combination of a high purity dolomite and a demanding sintering process permits to provide it with refractory properties for its use as a raw material in the production of shaped and unshaped refractories.
  • Refractories: as a finished product in the form of bricks or stemming plains are mainly used in steel industry.
  • Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC): obtained after numerous sintering steps. This PCC is used as a mineral load and rheological modifier for a great number of industrial applications; paper, painting, automotive industry, inks, plastics, etc.

Calcinor has presence in a large number of industrial sectors and processes where our products perform a main role as purifying, decontaminant and refractory agents and activators of properties.
