Calcium carbonate is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula CaCO₃, commonly known as limestone, stone powder, etc. Calcium carbonate is alkaline, basically insoluble in water, but soluble in hydrochloric acid. It is one of the common substances on the earth, which exists in aragonite, calcite, chalk, limestone, marble, travertine and other rocks. Calcium Carbonate is the main component of some animal bones or shells. Calcium carbonate has a wide range of clinical and industrial uses.

Industrial uses of Calcium Carbonate:


Calcium carbonate is a trade name for limestone, a precious resource with a wide range of uses, as a mineral raw material. Limestone has been widely used in the history of human civilization because of its wide distribution and easy access in nature. As an important building material, it has a long history of mining. In modern industry, limestone is the main raw material for the manufacture of cement, lime, and calcium carbide. It is an indispensable flux limestone in the metallurgical industry. After superfine grinding, high-quality limestone is widely used. It is used in the manufacture of paper, rubber, paint, coating, medicine, cosmetics, feed, sealing, bonding, polishing and other products. According to incomplete statistics, the total ratio of limestone and building stones consumed in cement production, lime production, metallurgical flux, and limestone consumed by ultrafine calcium carbonate is 1:3. Limestone is a non-renewable resource. With the continuous progress of science and technology and the development of nanotechnology, the application field of limestone will be further expanded.


Clinical uses of Calcium Carbonate:


One is for calcium supplementation to treat osteoporosis; the other is for patients with renal insufficiency or hyperphosphatemia caused by chronic kidney disease. The calcium in calcium carbonate can be combined with phosphate in food to block the absorb of phosphate, thus plays a role in lowering blood phosphorus. When calcium carbonate is used as a calcium agent to treat osteoporosis, taken after meals is a better choice. Because calcium carbonate taken on an empty stomach will react with the hydrochloric acid in the stomach and produce carbon dioxide, causing bloating and stomach pain, calcium carbonate is used as a calcium supplement and should be taken after meals. When calcium carbonate is combined with phosphate in food to inhibit the absorption of phosphate and treat hyperphosphatemia, calcium carbonate is suitable for chewing and taking with meals, and it is fully combined with phosphate in food to reduce blood phosphorus. Here are the two main uses of calcium carbonate.


Precautions for using Calcium Carbonate:


Environmental hazard:


This substance is basically harmless to the environment, but do not pour it into the water without government permission.


Health hazard:


Workers engaged in mining and processing often have upper respiratory tract inflammation, bronchitis, and emphysema. Lymph node calcification appears on chest X-ray, and lung texture is enhanced. Workers suffering from pneumoconiosis are mainly related to the silica impurities contained in this product.


Storage method:


  • Food grade plastic bag outer woven bag packaging.


  • Store in a cool, dry and ventilated place. It can be sealed and stored at (25 ℃, 100 kPa). This product is not regulated. 


  • Do not store with poisonous chemicals and liquid acids. Pay attention to moisture.
