Uses of Heavy Calcium Carbonate Powder Of Different Fineness

Heavy calcium usually refers to calcium carbonate, a chemical compound with the chemical formula CaCO3. It is called "heavy" to distinguish it from "light" calcium, which typically refers to calcium ions or calcium compounds that are lighter in atomic weight.

Calcium carbonate is a common substance found in rocks, such as limestone, marble, and chalk. It is also the main component of shells of marine organisms, snails, and pearls. In addition to its natural occurrence, calcium carbonate has many industrial applications. It is used in the production of cement, as a building material, in the manufacturing of glass, as a dietary supplement, and in various other industries.

Uses of Heavy Calcium Carbonate Powder Of Different Fineness

Heavy calcium powder, also known as ground calcium carbonate (GCC), is available in various fineness grades, and each grade has specific uses based on its particle size. Here are some common uses of heavy calcium powder of different fineness:


1. Coarse Heavy Calcium Powder (100-400 mesh):

Construction Industry: Coarse heavy calcium powder is often used as a filler in concrete and asphalt. It enhances the strength and durability of these construction materials.


2. Medium Heavy Calcium Powder (400-800 mesh):

Rubber Industry: Medium-grade heavy calcium powder is used as a reinforcing agent and filler in the rubber industry. It improves the hardness, tensile strength, and wear resistance of rubber products.

Plastics Industry: It is used as a filler in plastics to improve mechanical properties, such as stiffness and impact resistance.


3. Fine Heavy Calcium Powder (800-1250 mesh):

Paints and Coatings: Fine heavy calcium powder is commonly used as a white pigment in paints and coatings. It improves covering power, color stability, and durability.

Paper Industry: This grade is suitable for high-quality coated paper, providing enhanced brightness and printability.


4. Ultra-Fine Heavy Calcium Powder (1250-3000 mesh):

Pharmaceuticals: Ultra-fine heavy calcium powder is used as a calcium supplement in pharmaceuticals and as an excipient in tablet formulations.

Food Industry: It is used as a calcium source and anti-caking agent in certain food products, providing nutritional benefits and improving texture.


5. Superfine Heavy Calcium Powder (3000 mesh and above):

High-End Coatings: Superfine heavy calcium powder is used in high-end coatings where extremely fine particles are required for a smooth and high-quality finish.

Plastics and Rubber: In specific applications where an ultra-fine particle size is critical, such as in certain types of plastics and rubber products.

The specific uses of heavy calcium powder can vary based on the requirements of individual industries and applications. The choice of the appropriate fineness depends on factors such as the intended function of the material, the processing characteristics of the end product, and the overall quality standards.


Manufacturers often produce heavy calcium powder with different fineness levels to cater to diverse industrial needs. Additionally, some applications may involve a combination of different grades to achieve the desired properties in the final product.
