SCHAEFER PRECARB® - precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) - gives paper maximum whiteness and opacity, increases its bulk and improves printability. Our ‘onsite’ technology allows us to produce right on our customer's premises: we make customized SCHAEFER PRECARB® grades at the customer's production site in our onsite production plant.

SCHAEFER PRECAL® - calcium oxide - serves as a precursor for PCC production in PCC onsite plants where it is used to make precipitated calcium carbonate right at the paper machine.
