DOLOMITE IN PAPER.
In the paper sector, dolomite has been used in paper and cardboard production by adding it into cellulose in different proportions. Dolomite increases the whiteness of paper due to which there is lesser requirement of additional optical brighteners. This makes it cost-effective as well as environmentally friendly. Further, it keeps less water and increases amount of drawn water thereby increasing production speed.
While dolomite is not mostly considered secondary to calcite in terms of whiteness, Anand Talc has access to very high whiteness dolomite that can very well compete with calcite in its filler applications and is thus a good choice for use in the paper industry.
