Also known as dibasic calcium phosphate.

An anhydrous white, odorless, tasteless powder. It is stable in air and insoluble in water and alchohol but readily soluble in hydrochloric and nitric acids. It is used in the food industry as a mineral supplement and dough conditioner.
It can be used in ceramics as a source of calcium, however other sources are much less expensive and more practical. Tri-Calcium phosphate is considered a better subsitute for bone ash in ceramics.

LOI is 7-8.5%
Bulk density is 83 lbs/cubic foot

Stauffer Chemical is a US manufacturer, Chemische Fabrik Budenheim a German one.
