Most probably all of us have had our first experience with Ground Calcium Carbonate way back in elementary school in the form of white chalk; that we enjoyed shooting at others in the absence of teachers! However, as one of the most versatile and widely used minerals today, Calcium Carbonate, or Limestone, has a wide variety of applications in agricultural, agronomy, industrial and environmental sectors.
Calcium carbonate is a chemical compound having the formula CaCO3. It is one of the most common substances found in rocks as the minerals calcite and argonite but most notably as limestone, which is a type of sedimentary rock. Makrana – Kishangarh belt in Rajasthan being one of the most famed circuits for the mining of such rocks, thus inevitably serves as our source to produce finest quality calcium carbonate in micronized from.
Ground calcium carbonate, commonly referred to as GCC in industrial applications, is widely used as a filler material. Ground calcium carbonate may be referred to as calcium or limestone in agricultural applications. Three primary attributes namely particle size, chemical purity, and color define the quality of the GCC, and define the suitability of use for any given application. We at Ridhi Sidhi Minerals lay requisite importance to each of the parameters and closely monitor the end quality of the product manufactured in order to serve our valued clients with the best products in the Indian market.
