Functions and Characteristics


  1. Particle Size and Fineness: The high fineness, with more than 99.5% passing through a 0.075mm sieve in the premium grade, indicates a fine powder form. This ensures uniform dispersion in various applications, contributing to product quality.
  2. Calcium Content Precision: The precise calcium content in each grade (6.5±0.5%, 6.5±0.6%, 6.5±0.7%) reflects a high level of manufacturing control. This precision is vital for maintaining consistent performance in PVC stabilization and other applications.
  3. Free Acid (Stearic Acid) Control: The low free acid content of ≤0.5% is crucial for preventing acidity, ensuring the stability of the product. This is especially important in applications where the material comes into contact with sensitive products like food or medical appliances.
  4. Heating Loss Sensitivity: The heating loss parameter, with values ranging from ≤2.0% to ≤3.0%, indicates the material’s sensitivity to heat and moisture. Lower values signify better stability during processing and storage.
  5. Melting Point Range: The specified melting point range (149~155°C for premium grade) ensures the material’s effectiveness in applications where temperature stability is critical, such as PVC processing.
  6. Application Flexibility: The diverse applications, including stabilizing PVC, lubrication, non-toxic soft films, flatting agent, and grease paint thickening, showcase the material’s versatility in different industries.
  7. Appearance Standards: The characteristic white powder appearance not only signifies purity but also aids in visual quality control during manufacturing processes.
  8. Quality Grading System: The presence of premium, first-grade, and qualified categories establishes a clear quality hierarchy. This ensures that manufacturers can choose the specific grade that aligns with their application requirements.
