Precipitated Calcium Carbonate
High brightness and light scattering for filler and coating applications
PCC is produced through a chemical reaction process that utilises calcium oxide (quicklime), water, and carbon dioxide. The reaction produces very pure calcium carbonate crystals and water. The crystals can be tailored to a variety of different shapes and sizes, depending on the specific reaction process used.
Imerys produces a range of PCC products characterised by specific particle shape, particle size distribution, and optical properties. Our process control systems ensure a consistent, high quality product that meets our customers' precise specifications.
Typically, PPC is produced in slurry form on satellite plants at paper mill sites.
