Precipitated Lime

Synthetic calcium carbonate

Formula: CaCO3
Alternate Names: Precipitated Calcium Carbonate, PCC

Oxide Weight56.10
Formula Weight100.00
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).
