Alternate Names: Dicalcium Phosphate Anhydrous
Description: Synthetic Bone Ash, Di-Calcium Phosphate
An anhydrous white, odorless, tasteless powder. It is stable in air and insoluble in water and alcohol but readily soluble in hydrochloric and nitric acids. It is used in the food industry as a mineral supplement and dough conditioner. Dicalcium phosphate dihydrate is similar (CAS# 7789-77-7).
Dicalcium phosphate can be used in glazes as a source of calcium, however, other sources are much less expensive and more practical. Tri-Calcium phosphate is considered a better substitute for bone ash in ceramics than is this material.
LOI is 7-8.5%
