PCC (Precipitated Calcium Carbonate)

PCC (Precipitated Calcium Carbonate), is synthetically produced from quicklime by chemical precipitation method. PCC is used as a functional mineral filler in many sectors, with its high CaCO3 content and low impurity, variety of crystal structure/morphology and homogeneous partical size distribution.

PCC can be produced in different morphologies according to its usage areas. Needle-shaped aragonite, scalenohedral, prismatic and rhombohedral structures are typical cyristal types of PCC.

 

What makes PCC unlike ?


Hence PCC is being produced by chemical methods, it is possible to get nano sizes and in different crystal shaped products which can not be achieved by mere grinding and the partical size distribution can be kept under control. These superiorities give PCC function and with the use of PCC production costs are decreased.

 

PCC adds some extra properties to the product such as strength, opacity, whiteness, brightness and viscosity regulation (thixotropy). Due to these properties, PCC is preferred to be used in many sectors like paint, plastic, paper, food, pharmacy, chemistry etc.

adaCAL PCC

    / Our Products / PCC
  • adaCAL N1-C
  • adaCAL P-1
  • adaCAL B1-C
  • adaCAL B1

adaCAL is used in paper production as functional filler and coating mineral. It positively changes, both chemical and physical/optical properties of the paper.
 

with adaCAL use in paper as filler;
• Add paper opacity/birghtness and whiteness.
• Increase the bulk density of paper.
• Improves the smoothness of the paper surface.
• Reduces dusting.
• Enhances bonding interaction with fibers.
• By stabilizing the retention/drainage system, allows better paper machine runnability.
• By significantly increase sheet filler content, reduces the production cost.

 

with adaCAL use in paper as coating pigment;
• Add paper birghtness and whiteness.
• Performs optimum rheological properties and provides ideal thixotropy.
• Improves opacity.
• By balancing ink absorption, improves the print quality.

adaCAL is used as a functional mineral filler, primarily in rigid plastic/PVC profile, plastic pipe and flexible plastic/ PVC cable production.

With the adaCAL PCC use in PVC extrusion;
• Impact strength of the PVC profile products are improved.
• Brightness is increased 2-3 times.
• Better surface finish is supplied.
• Corner butt weld strength is improved.
• Extrusion torques in production process are balanced.
• Regular material flow is supplied during extrusion.

In pipe production;
• Impact strength test values are increased.
• Interior surface smoothness is improved.
• Supply a better voice/noise insulation.
• Minimize the geometrical deformation and/or heat distortion due to temperature changes.

With the adaCAL use in cable production;
• Add the cable toughness and elasticity.
• The electric resistance of PVC cable cover is increased.
• Unify the interface of PVC cable and conductive material.
• Tensile strength is improved.

With the adaCAL PCC use in flexible PVC production (fittings, seal, doormat, tread etc.);
• Flexibility is increased.
• Tensile strength is improved.
• Better surface finish is supplied.

With adaCAL PCC use in PP,PE nylon bag and packing;

• Supply the permeability of the film at desired products.
• Tensile strength is improved.
• Transparency of the film is not affected negatively.

adaCAL is used as a functional mineral filler in paint formulas in order to reduce
the production cost and improve the optical features.


Compared to other fillers in paint, , adaCAL has narrow and homogeneous partical size distribution and improves the optical properties of paint with the help of its controlled crysytal structure and shape.

 

Specifically in architectural paints, by replacing adaCAL PCC instead of TiO2, the most expensive input in paint formulas, the unit consumption of TiO2 can be reduced up to 40% and production costs are reduced by 6%-18%.

 

with adaCAL use in paint;


• Hiding power is improved.
• The desired whiteness is provided.
• Surface smoothness is increased.
• The desired brightness/opacity is provided.
• Scrub resistance is increased.
• Density is decreased.

(NPCC) adaCAL N1, N1-C are used in adhesives and selants. in process;


• Functions as a rheological additive and provides reological control.
• Imparts thixotropic viscosity.
• By increasing the mechanical forces, improves the adherence of adhesive/sealant on applied surface.

 

The other functioning areas of (NPCC) adaCAL N1 and adaCAL N1-C,


• In pharmacy: As major and minor drug substance.
• In food industry: As a calcium source.
• In toothpaste: As a calcium source and the moderate to mild abrasive.
• In cosmetics: Used as pH regulator and can find place in sector with low abrasion features and chemical stability.
