Application of Calcium Carbonate Powder in the Plastic industry


When calcium carbonate is used in plastic processing, the most important one of inorganic powder additive. In plastics processing, in addition to synthetic resin raw material as a basis, the scientifically correct, rational use of various additives and auxiliaries is justifiable, and that of inorganic mineral powder is one of the most important additives. As you know, the plastic material in inorganic mineral powder may help reduce raw material costs and improve performance, and given the important role of the new features in recent years has further found that the use of inorganic mineral powder material to reduce the white pollution, protection environment environmental effect, the implementation of circular economy in today’s stress, building resources and energy-saving and environment-friendly trend of our society, the more prominent inorganic mineral powders in the significance of the application of plastic.

In plastic manufacturing, besides raw synthetic resin material, combining other additives and chemicals such as mineral powder at an accurate ratio is necessary. The main role of CaCo3 powder is to reduce cost, give new features and enhance performance.

Moreover, the price of polymers doubled in a short time, which increased the demand for CaCO3. Hence, Calcium carbonate is widely used in plastic manufacture to change plastics’ physio-mechanical properties and hardness. Using modern technology blended with polyolefin at high temperatures, calcium carbonate is used to create FILLER MASTERBATCH PRODUCTS that have a wide range of applications in the plastics industry.

Advantages of Calcium Carbonate Powder (CaCO3)

  • Cost saving
  • Reduced white dye because of high brightness
  • Preventing the problem of evaporation by reducing the temperature, decreasing
  • Furnace depreciation.
  • Increased toughness, smoothness of product’s surface
  • Can be mixed directly with PP powder for vacuum shaping.
  • Easy to disperse
  • Increase Heat resistance, size stabilization, easy for printing, good texture, releasing heat automatically to avoid environmental pollution.
