Synthetic calcium carbonate
Alternate Names: Precipitated Calcium Carbonate, PCC
||If this formula is not unified correctly please contact us. |
Made by heating calcium carbonate to remove the CO2 and make calcium hydroxide, adding water and purifying and then combining with the CO2 to precipitate the calcium carbonate back out leaving other impurities in the slurry. We are thus representing the chemistry as the theoretical pure CaCO3.
Ultrafine Nano PCC is also available (particles finer than 0.1 microns).

Limestone, Calcium Carbonate
Also called GCC (Ground Calcium Carbonate), limestone is a very common sedimentary rock. Calcite and Aragonite minerals are the pure crystalline forms of CaCO3 (limestone contains them), but limestone...
