DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "The Global Market for Nano Precipitated Calcium Carbonate" report to their offering.
Nanoscale Precipitated Calcium Carbonate/ Nanoscale Calcium Carbonate Particles (NPCC), also known as ultrafine PCC, are typically 10 - 80 nanometers (nm) with specific surface area (SSA) in the 30 - 60 m2/g range.
Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) has been widely used for several years as a filler material in papermaking, coatings, plastics and agriculture. NPCC displays a number of unique properties compared to PCC and finds application as a functional filler and extender in plastic compounds in the plastics, rubber, coating, papermaking, paint, and printing ink industries. It's most prominent current use is for improving the mechanical performance of plastics, polymer composites and rubber.
Desirable properties include:
- High porosity
- High surface area to volume ratio
- Exceptional mechanical properties.
Report contents include:
- Main applications for Nano Precipitated Calcium Carbonate
