Crystal design

Crystal design

We produce precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) in various crystal modifications: calcite, aragonite and vaterite. In addition, the particle shape can be varied in a very large number of ways. The physical parameters for each of these crystal structures, e.g.

  • particle size and grain size distribution.
  • single particles or agglomerates of primary crystals
  • specific surface area, pore volume, absorption capacity (oil absorption value).

can be modified to suit the application.

This allows light scattering properties, opacity, rheology and many other application-related properties to be optimized.


  • a high degree of chemical purity,
  • a high level of whiteness and opacity,
  • exactly defined crystal structures,
  • exceptional fineness and close particle size distribution

are called for, our PCC is the right choice. Its versatility is evident in its wide variety of applications.
