Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) plays a determining role in the improvement of paint formulations.
The first layer or coating is obtained by mixing natural pigments with vegetable or animal oils, and its application was intended mainly for more decorative purposes. The continuous development of technology and research in new materials (resins, additives, solvents or the same PCC) has made it possible for paint to become an essential protective element.
The range of products offered by Calcinor brings the following advantages to the paint sector:
The inclusion of CALPREC PA® or Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) in the formulation of its paint provides opacity and whiteness. Furthermore thanks to its special microstructure, it favours the disintegration of titanium dioxide, allowing it space to arrange among itself an optimum distance, therefore also improving its performance. Said in another way, CALPREC PA® is used as an extender of TiO2 and therefore reduces the consumption of this, obtaining the same results as well as significantly saving manufacture costs. CALPREC PA® allows it to be used both in water based system as in solvents.
