1952RH is a functional filler or pigment in paint and coating with exceptional rheology and thixotropy. Under high shear, 1952RH thins out the coating making it flow easily and facilitate the application of the coating onto a surface. Once shear is removed, viscosity returns enabling the coating to adhere to the surface without sagging or running.

Calcium Carbonate Nanopowder/Nanoparticles General Description
First identified in the opening decade of the 19th-century, calcium constitutes a part of the alkaline metal group, which is a reactive, soft metal, and the fifth most abundant element found in the earth's crust. Displaying a dull gray-silver appearance in its elemental form, calcium is located in such minerals as gypsum, plagioclases, dolomite, pyroxenes, and garnets. In addition to various industrial usages as an alloying agent, calcium also is also a biologically essential element found in bones, teeth, and shells. Calcium carbonate nanoparticles are synthesized through the precipitation of calcium nitrate and saturated sodium carbonate solution.
Calcium Carbonate Nanopowder/Nanoparticles Applications
Calcium carbonate nanoparticles offer an array of industrial applications owing to its non-toxicity, biocompatibility with bodily fluids, high porosity, and high surface area to volume ratio. As such, some key applications include:
- Imaging Purposes--Calcium carbonate nanoparticles are ideal for the enablement of polarization-dependent image contrast mapping, which offers signal to noise ratio, magnification, and contrasting with unprecedented accuracy.
- Drug Delivery—used in the delivery of hydrophilic protein drugs, calcium carbonate is excellent because of the element's non-toxicity, biocompatibility with bodily fluids. Of particular interest is the is the use in cancer fighting drugs.
- Alloy and Catalyst—for use in industrial applications, calcium carbonate is frequently used as a an alloying agent to help bond with other metals, particularly aluminum and beryllium, as well as a component found in cement and mortar compounds.
- Industrial Coatings—Calcium carbonate nanoparticles and powders are frequently found in industrial applications that require protective coating. It's wide availability and low cost makes it a cost effective material for industrial purposes.
Calcium carbonate is a ubiquitous element that a wide range of applications that are of benefit from the manufacturer down to the end user.
