Major industrial applications of GCC and PCC

Calcium carbonate powders, precipitated products and dolomite, are among the most important and versatile materials used by industry.

Both ground calcium carbonate (GCC) and precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) are used in an increasingly wide range of applications. Commercial grades of calcium carbonate have been developed to meet the technical demands of a different requirements by optimising properties such as fineness, particle size distribution and colour.
