Calcium Carbonate CaCO3

Calcium Carbonate

Conia Mineral Marble produce industrial minerals from Turkey especially Calcium Carbonate. Our calcium carbonates used for different industries. We produce 100.000 ton calcium carbonate for a year.

What is Calcium Carbonate?

Calcite is a carbonate mineral and the most stable of polymorph of Calcium Carbonate ( CaCO3 ). The other polymorphs are the minerals aragonite and vaterite.
Calcite ( Calcium Carbonate – CaCO3 ) has a defining Mohs hardness of 3, specific gravity of 2.71 and its luster is vitreous in cyrstallized varieties. Color is white or none, though shades of gray, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, brown or even black can occur when the mineral is charged with impurities.
Calcite ( CaCO3 ) is transparent to opaque and may occasionally show phosphorescence of fluorescence.

Where we use Calcium Carbonate?

Calcite ( CaCO3 ) is presented to different industrial sectors like a filling material. At a rate of 15-30% of micronized calcite ( CaCO3 ) is added to cellulose in the production of writing tab paper, wall paper and cardboard. Being in high whiteness, cheapness and because of other technical features, last ten years, starting from Europe in all over the word, Calcite (CaCO3) has taken place of kaolin in paper sector. Since Calcite ( CaCO3 ) is harmless mineral to environment, In paper industry, using  Calcium Carbonate ( CaCO3 ) reduces consumption of cellulose and optical bleaching agents as well as ensures reduction of environmental pollution. Also in paint industry, interior and exterior paints, water-based paint system, 25-30% of calcite ( CaCO3 ) is used and using Calcite ( CaCO3 ) cuts down consumption of TiO2 and lowers the cost of production.

Our both natural ground and coated Micronized or Nano calcites ( CaCO3 ) are used for many reasons such as its color, chemical purity and cheapness, extensively in the plastics industry, particularly PVC pipes, profiles, panels, cables. Micronized calcite ( CaCO3 ) also used in adhesives, gum, food, toothpaste, ceramics, carpets and linoleum floor, foam and rubber industries.
