Industries and Applications

Application

Pure limestone is among the most used raw materials for industrial and agricultural purposes.

Plastics industry

CaCO3 is an excellent mineral filler for plastic products like adhesives, PVC pipes, and cables. It improves their stability, strength, and finish by reducing surface energy and increasing gloss and opacity levels. It can also improve their heat resistance.

The food industry uses calcium carbonate in its purest form to make bread dough, baking powder, cereal, baked goods, nutritional bars, sauces, and many other products, including animal feed. Besides regulating pH levels, it’s an effective thickener and bulking agent that extends shelf life without affecting flavor and texture.

You can find calcium carbonate in medicinal tablets, toothpaste, and many dietary supplements. It’s a mild abrasive, phosphate binder, antacid, and a natural source to increase calcium intake.

Calcium carbonate can stiffen rubber products like tires, hoses, and tape and ensure size stability, controlling shrinkage and heat extension. It can also make them more resistant to tears and abrasions.

Using CaCO3 as a filler or a coating pigment in paper production helps improve the material’s brightness, opacity, and smoothness. It’s more cost-effective than other minerals and additives suitable for alkaline papermaking, making it perfect for paper mills.

Calcium carbonate is an excellent building block for construction materials because of its stability and durability. It’s a fundamental ingredient in concrete blocks, cement, stones, tiles, glass, roofing shingles, and many other building materials – it’s one itself in its natural marble form.
