Following you will find some of our product families with its specific characteristics provided to the market:
The Hydrocarb product family has numerous qualities associated with high-brightness ground calcium carbonates (GCC) for almost all paper applications – both for filling and coating.
This product family incorporates all dry calcium carbonates. The products are offered in bulk or in super sacks as well as water-soluble paper bags for easy handling. Drycarb grades are characterized by their low anionic charge, easy storage and excellent shelf life.
Omya's precipitated calcium carbonates (PCC) are designed to meet the specific needs of every customer. Whether aragonitic, rhombohedric or scalenohedric PCCs, or for on-site or off-site use – Omya always supplies the right quality.
Products in the Covercarb product family are characterized by a narrow particle size distribution for maximizing opacity, such as in the creation of perfect physical and optical coverage.
The very fine coating pigments in the Setacarb product family are designed to generate maximum smoothness and gloss, especially for multiple-coated graphical paper.
Special pigments for specific characteristics as for example high coverage or ultra-high absorptive properties.
These special pigments are tailor-made to meet the special demands of super calendered (SC) grades, such as smoothness and gloss.
