CALCITE IN PAPER
In the paper sector, micronized calcite has been used in paper and cardboard production by adding it into cellulose in different proportions. Since calcite increases the whiteness of paper, naturally grinded calcite is preferred where costs of making pulp are high since it diminishes the requirement of additional whitening pigments. This also makes the process more eco-friendly.
Moreover, calcite keeps less water and increases amount of drawn water thereby increasing production speeds.
