Ground Calcium Carbonate

Ground Calcium Carbonate


Our Ground Calcium Carbonate is selected from very rich mines of Pakistan origin. It is processed through the most modern plant. Our Ground Calcium Carbonate is mainly used in the end use application like paper, plastic, paints and PVC industries.

Wet ground calcium carbonate

Wet ground calcium carbonate slurry for paper coating. Our fillers add tremendous amount of value to paper and its properties. Quality improvements, economic factors & sustainability all create a drive towards using higher mineral filler level in paper. Our fillers would normally help in the following:

  • Fiber Replacement leading to direct cost saving.
  • Opacity
  • Brightness
  • Smoothness
  • Reduction in Printing Strike through.
  • Uniformity in Printing ink receptivity.

Our products are designed to meet the needs of a large variety of GCC grades. Our products are available in different particle sizes ranging from 3.5, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 17, 24 & 40 micron, The numbers reflect the nominal median particle size (d98) of the product, we also offer R&D as per customer’s specification.

Ground Calcium Carbonate For Paper Applications

Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC) and Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) are commonly used in many types of paper, both as fillers within the paper structure and as a coating on the surface. A range of products are offered throughout the world, differing in particle size, particle Size distribution and brightness to suit all applications.

Key Features ____

Newage GCC have high brightness, high solids and excellent rheology. Our GCC is engineered to fine tune particle size and crystal structure to match the customer’s needs.

Application Specific Benefits

As fillers, newage carbonates improve the optical and printing properties of paper while reducing cost by replacement of more expensive fibers. As coatings, newage carbonates further improve the optical and surface properties and through careful selection of pigment properties, provide the correct coating structure for interaction with ink during printing.

Ground Calcium Carbonate For Rubber Applications

Fine ground carbonates are used in a wide range of rubber applications as high loading extenders, improving rheological properties and process ability of the compounds with little or no impact on the hardness or other mechanical properties. Surface treated grades can be used to ease handling and improve its dispersion within the compound. Precipitated and ultra fine calcium carbonates can also provide a certain level of reinforcement.

Key Features
Whiteness, Process ability, Extra durability, Reinforcement
Application Specific Benefits
In tyre sidewall and liners, carbonates are used as extenders. They can be also used in seals & gaskets as a neutral extender, helping to maintain the compression set performances.
Carbonates are also chosen as extenders for many applications such as footwear and flooring because of their whiteness, which can be used in both clear and colored compounds.

Ground Calcium Carbonate For Paint Applications

Newage Carbonates provides a wide range of ground calcium carbonate products to paint, ink and coating industries. Calcium carbonate primarily serve as a replacement for more costly raw material components. While GCC products are more commonly found in paint and coating formulations

Key Features
High Whiteness, High Purity, Opacity, Gloss, Rheology, Tio2 Extension
Application Specific Benefits

In some exterior paint formulations, carbonates provide weathering resistance and pH stabilization while for stucco and renders, carbonates mainly contribute to application rheology, shrinkage reduction and visual interest. For road marking and traffic paints,marble-based carbonates are incorporated to provide high brightness and opacity as well as cost reduction. White powder coatings with a high TiO2 content can benefit from pigment spacing and extension features offered by engineered Carbonates for domestic appliance and other indoor uses to reduce cost, while maintaining good gloss, color and opacity properties. Decorative interior paints mainly utilize carbonates to extend expensive components in the formulation such as resin and TiO2 and to control gloss levels in formulation.

Calcium Carbonate For Food & Personal Care Applications

Calcium carbonate is commonly used as a white colorant and abrasive in toothpastes and similar applications. Best quality of raw material, together with the particle size, allow us to provide the requested levels of brightness and abrasion. For other applications, the main issue is the source of calcium. Once again, calcium carbonate is the salt containing the highest amount of calcium. As in all other health-related applications, purity and safety during production are crucial. Owing to the special use of cosmetic products, microbiology is another key aspect & Newage is well equipped to handle. From production to packaging and from basic research to final control laboratory testing – Newage is able to work on innovative solutions.

Main applications:
• Tootpaste
• Body lotion
• Facial cream
• Mediclnes
• Body and facial scrub
