Ground Calcium Carbonate
An optimal association of nature and human talent
Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC) is produced through mechanical grinding of naturally occurring calcium carbonate rocks. Our production sites with wet grinding capabilities use the finest, pure, white high brightness marble as the raw material and, at some sites, locally available limestone or chalk may be used.
GCC in pigment formulations provides good rheology and high brightness at low cost. Imerys Pigments for Paper & Packaging has the multi-pigment formulation knowledge to select the best partner pigments to complement GCC, playing to its strengths and avoiding its weaknesses.
Imerys’ facilities with are located in the world's major paper manufacturing regions.
