Calcium Carbonate and its most surprising applications. Part I
60 years of experience endorse Calcinor in the field of extraction and production of this widely used calcium product, but it is also used in some very surprising ways.
Two Calcinor products, Micronized Calcium Carbonate and Precipitated Calcium Carbonate, are the stars of these curious applications, but first let us find out its most common uses so as to understand the work it does in our immediate surroundings.
Most common applications of a well-known but necessary product.
Calcium Carbonate is an inert solid that can be used directly after being extracted from quarries and classified according to its grain size, it is employed in mixes with other binders for the manufacture of concretes, asphalts and mortars. It is also commonly used directly in fillings, road construction and as railway ballast.
Did you know that this naturally-occurring aggregate is the second most consumed raw-material after water?
In short, Calcinor has been able to provide solutions for the use of CaCO3 in the Construction sector by developing new products, specifically for civil works and made to measure products for the restoration of façades and historic buidings.
Technology at the service of differentiated Calcium Carbonate.
Starting with a product of high purity, as is the case with Calcinor, allows us to produce a differentiated Calcium Carbonate for very different and varied applications. But how do we do it?
So the size of the grain in this versatile product can be adjusted according to the different needs of each application.
PCC is characterized by having a narrow distribution of very fine particle sizes (<2 microns). At crystallographic level it is possible to obtain different crystalline formations, which give different properties to the final product, increasing its applicability as an additive in several sectors.
