PERFORMANCE MINERALS FOR SPECIALTY APPLICATIONS ALBACAR' 5970
Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (pcc)
Albacar" 5970 precipitated calcium carbonate (pcc) has a unique rosette (scalenohedral) particle shape. This rosette structure makes ALBACAR '5970 pcc useful in applications where a high oil absorption and high viscosity are desired.
Albacar 5970 pcc is produced at Adams, MA under controlled conditions to yield a pigment of high purity, with an arrow particle size distribution.
Albacar 5970 pcc can be used as a filler in plastics, rubber, paints, adhesives, sealants, and caulks. lt is also useful as a filler and a coating pigment in paper.
