Calcium carbonate (GCC, PCC and MCC) is the most important inorganic pigment for most of today's paper and board grades. To a lesser extent, other inorganic pigments such as clay, talc, silica and others are also used. These pigments are retained within the paper structure with the help of synthetic or natural retention systems
Increasing the mineral loading in paper or board products, Omya's Calcium carbonate helps to save fibers. This can lead to a faster dewatering of the web in the forming and pressing sections of the paper machine, resulting in improved drying which could lower production costs or increase production capacity.
Calcium carbonate combined with functional additives and/or polymers providing a new level of performance for packaging applications. Omya's taylor-made solutions meet the special requirements of our customers worldwide.
