Ground Calcium Carbonate


Carmeuse is a leading producer of ground calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) is a very common chemical compound making up 4% of the earth’s crust and is the primary constituent in limestone. While it is abundant, not all limestone is suitable for ground calcium carbonate (GCC) production due to impurities. Calcium carbonate is one of the most useful and versatile materials known to humans and has many practical applications such as use in flooring (carpet, luxury vinyl tile, stone plastic composite), paint, adhesives, paper, plastics, rubber, asphalt roofing, and many other purposes, including agriculture.
