OceanCal® powder is very pure, ground, oolitic aragonite sand (calcium carbonate) treated with or without steric acid. It’s unique crystalline structure, high purity and consistency offer economic and performance benefits. OceanCal is designed for direct powder applications such as PVC, adhesives, paint and as a food additive. Products made with OceanCal offer environmental benefits that supersedes other calcium carbonate powders by reducing carbon footprint that typically occurs during processing.
SUITABLE USES: PVC | Plastics | Paints & Coatings | Paper | Cosmetics | Pharmaceuticals | Nutraceuticals | Adhesives | Sealants | Phosphate Removal
Ground to a median particle size (D50) of 12 micron and topside particle size (D90) 25 micron which is suitable for most thick gauge, direct-feed processing applications.
This medium grind product provides a low cost source of Calcium Carbonate powder for applications requiring performance in bulk quantities. This product is ground to median particle size (D50) of 5 micron and top-size (D90) of 15 micron. This product is the foundation of our direct powder application masterbatches and compounded pellets.
This small grind product is ground to a median particle size (D50) of 3 micron and top-size (D90) of 8 micron. This grind spec is suited ideally for all plastics compounding and secondary processes. This product is the foundation of our direct powder application masterbatches and compounded pellets.
The above products can also be offered in an uncoated form. For the plastics industry, OceanCal is coated with steric acid. We can also provide the above without the coating. Uncoated OceanCal is often used in agriculture, phosphate mitigation, and other applications where oolitic aragonite powder is required.
product data & sell sheets
Calcium carbonate derived from oolitic aragonite is biogenic and naturally reoccurring. This form of calcium carbonate has been shown to replace petrochemicals used in common products without compromising utility. By replacing traditional resin with high performance natural materials, OceanCal® powder helps to achieve smaller carbon footprints and decreased amounts of energy used in the modern day.
