Micronized Calcite - Egekalsit®

Calcium carbonate (CaCO3), which constitutes about 4% of the earth's crust, exists in the mineral forms of chalk, limestone and calcite. Although chalk is the first calcium carbonate mineral to be used industrially in the world due to its low natural grain size, it has gradually left its place to limestone and calcite due to its relatively low purity and low whiteness.

Calcite minerals are generally used as the purest sources of calcium carbonate as functional fillers in a wide variety of industries, especially in paper, paint and plastics. Calcite has a mineral density of 2.71 gr/cm3 and is a mineral with Mohs hardness of 3.

Turkey has the purest calcite reserves in the world.
