Calcite Powder is a naturally occurring form of Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) with an extremely high degree of whiteness, purity. This powder is stiff and free-flowing in nature.
Calcite Powder is extensively utilized as a filler in the manufacturing of plastics owing to its low oil absorption, high dispersibility, smooth surface finish, high impact resistance, easy processing, unmatched dimensional stability, and its compatibility with other complex polymers and organic additives.
Our Calcite Powder can be used as mineral fillers to obtain high humidity retention. It can also be used to improve the dryness and consistency of the final mass product obtained.
The calcite powder we provide helps in improving the cleaning action of detergents and soaps due to the presence of sufficient grade of abrasiveness. Along with this, the added Calcite Powder does not alter the physical or chemical properties of soap products or the viscosity of the entire mixture.
Calcite Powder does not get retained by the textile fibers as they don’t contain silica in a free state, which results in negligible damage to the fabrics. Our calcite powder can also be used as a secondary pigment. The Calcite Powder offered by us also caters to a wide variety of piping applications.
Calcite Powder is also extensively used in the manufacturing and processing of various paints, which provide a greater covering strength to the paint.
Calcite also helps to increase the performance and quality of high-end paints, oil-based synthetics and other coatings. The stark white colour of our calcite prevents any interference with the paint’s innate colours, and contributes to the paint’s opacity, while not adversely affecting the viscosity of the paint. This makes the paint drip-proof, and more cohesive to its applied surfaces.
Coated Calcite Powder : We also provide a protective coating of Stearic Acid on our Calcite Powder. The Coated Calcite Powder is used in the manufacture of plastic compounds to prevent the collection of moisture.

|Grade 1||350-400 Mesh||White|
|Grade 2||250-300 Mesh||Off White|
Oil Exploration/ Oil : ized and grounded Calcite Powder is used to increase the mud density in oil rigs and is preferred over using barite as it is soluble in mineral acids, especially hydrochloric acid (HCl), and is used to clean up production zones.
It is primarily used as a bridging material in drilling operations, workover fluids and completions. Specially sized calcite particles, along with polymers, are used to control and reduce fluid loss in brines and drill-ins, workover fluids and completions.
Rigid PVC Pipes : PVC is a highly versatile polymer, which is recommended for a variety of pipe applications, from large-scale sewer piping systems, smaller residential drain-waste piping vents, to even smaller filtered water piping systems and also electrical conduits.
Our surface-treated calcite powder is designed to give an excellent dispersion, along with sufficient incorporation in the polymer matrix, for maximum formulation flexibility and property development.
Calcite Powder also improves on the base properties of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) by making the polymer matrix more stiff and improves its impact resistance by making the particle sizes smaller.
Paints, Inks, Ceramic, and Powder Coating : For paints and ink, Calcite is used in manufacturing and processing them. It is also used as a powder coat material for finished products and ceramic objects.
Welding Rods : Calcite Powder is used as a filler for welding rods and blowtorches.
Automotive and Furniture Compounds : Calcite Powder is utilized in manufacturing certain automobile and furniture parts. The polymer plastic needed to create these parts are formulated and processed using high-grade Calcium Carbonate.
Rubber Industry : Specially formulated Calcite Powder is used in the production of natural and synthetic rubbers. It helps maintain the innate flexibility of the rubber compounds and helps increase its resistance to torsional erosion and traction, thus vastly improving their mechanical and electrical properties.
Calcite Powder also diminishes the ageing of rubber and reduces material fatigue. It does not change the external aspect of the rubber product and greatly reduces its susceptibility to heat and ruptures.
Textile Goods : Calcite is used in marking and sizing cloth by small-scale manufacturers.
Glass Industry : Calcite Powder is used as a flux for manufacturing glass.
Our Calcite Powder is categorized and stored in a segregated manner along with proper labeling. Calcite powder should be stored in a cool, dry environment, protected against moisture and chemical agents.
Shelf Life : The shelf life of Calcite Powder varies from 1-2 years, depending on the purity and storage environment
Note : All information given here was formulated from sourced test reports and external references. The buyer could ideally test a sample before confirming bulk orders. Since the product is derived from a naturally-sourced processed mineral, the purity will vary by a factor of ± 5%.

Review Rating: 4.8 / 5
Our Calcite Powder is widely used in the manufacture of dietary calcium supplements, phosphate binders, antacids, and even as the base vector material for medicines and tablets. It is also used in edible food products like baking powder, ready-made dessert mixes, toothpaste, wines and doughs.
If you need Calcite Powder for the manufacturing of Plastics, Paints, and Coatings, we recommend Grade 1 (96% Purity) Calcite Powder (2 - 5 microns). For Paper and alternative Plastics, we recommend Grade 2 (94% Purity) Calcite Powder (10 microns). For refined Paper, Rubber Processing and Adhesives, Grade 3 Calcite Powder of 92% Purity and 15 microns is the best. For Cement and Building Construction materials, Grade 4 Calcite Powder (90% Purity) of 20 micron is used.
Our Suppliers make use of techniques like surface mining, in-pit crushing and conveying, dragline excavations, underground mining, continuous mining, longwall mining, long haul mining, and other types of sustainable mining. We use advanced landscaping and surveying methods to inspect the prospective sites, before deciding on the best way to proceed with the mining operations.
