Difference between PCC precipitated calcium carbonate and GCC ground calcium carbonatePosted: 2016-07-22

  • Calcium carbonate in the form of chalk, whiting, and limestone is perhaps the most widely available and utilised mineral in the worldadditives today. Processed to be available in a wide range of particle sizes, the products function as low cost fillers added to extend and cheapen the widest range of polymeric systems.

    In comparison to this, synthetic PCCs offer a range of technical effects beyond the capability of GCC fillers and other more expensive and sophisticated additives. Ultrafine coated precipitated calcium carbonates (CPCC) are characterised by five important attributes:
    Primary particle size (20-70 nanometres)
    Regularity of shape
    Narrowness of particle size distribution
    Surface coating of calcium stearate
    High purity
    The combination of these properties clearly differentiates CPCC from GCC fillers and is also a factor in explaining the performance effects that are observed during the use of the precipitated products in rigid PVC.

    The manufacture of synthetic calcium carbonate by the reaction of gaseous carbon dioxide with a colloidal suspension of calcium hydroxide is sufficiently versatile to allow a number of different morphologies to be developed. Distinctive and reliable reaction control criteria exist for the manufacture of PCC where morphology and crystalline size can be varied at will.
