Making everyday life better
You may not realize it but natural ground calcium carbonate impacts your life on a daily basis and it was made significant contributions to people and communities around the world.
There is no mineral that is as diverse in its uses as calcium carbonate. Countless present-day materials and products would be unthinkable without mineral fillers.
From limestone and marble to calcium carbonate
Calcium carbonate is a natural product that comes from chalk limestone and marble deposits around the world.
Today high-purity calcium carbonate has made a significant contribution to the development of thousands of new products. Many of these would not even be possible without the versatility and performance that calcium carbonate provides. It is a mineral with very unique properties making it compatible with a wide range of materials and allowing for its use in very diverse applications.
