Nano calcium carbonate refers to the functional inorganic filler with a particle size of 1-100nm, which is widely used in rubber, plastic, paper, ink, coating, sealant and adhesive, medicine, toothpaste, food and other fields. The following small band to understand the application of nano calcium carbonate in ink.



Ink is mainly composed of pigment, connecting material, filler, additives, etc. The use of nano calcium carbonate by the configuration of the ink, the body bone and viscosity is better, it has good printing performance; good stability; dry fast and no opposite effect; due to the small particles, so the printing smooth, dot integrity, can improve the finish of the ink, suitable for high-speed printing, offset offset printing ink, gravure printing ink.


Nano calcium carbonate used in ink requires high performance. After use, the ink should show good dispersibility, absorption, transparency, gloss and good hiding power and printing adaptability. The dispersibility determines the gloss, fluidity and transparency of the ink. The crystal form of nano calcium carbonate is mainly cubic. The cubic nano calcium carbonate has the characteristics of low oil absorption value, good fluidity and easy dispersion. The particle size is generally between 20 ~ 100nm; the fluidity is related to the crystal shape and particle size. Cube and sphere crystals show greater fluidity, while chain crystals show smaller fluidity. Manufacturers need to select appropriate nano-calcium carbonate according to the type of ink produced. An important indicator of gloss of ink is related to the crystal shape and particle size distribution of calcium carbonate. Cube nano-calcium carbonate has a narrow particle size distribution and is arranged neatly in the ink coating, the surface of the printed matter is smooth and shows good gloss; the whiteness requirement is low, because other pigments need to be added, and the whiteness is too high to cause coloring.


In the ink industry, nano calcium carbonate plays an important role, the quality of the ink determines the quality of the printed matter, the use of nano calcium carbonate preparation of ink smooth, stable, good printing, covering power, in the printing process also showed good ink absorption, contribute to the quick drying of the ink.

Yuanlei Classroom | As a key material, how many applications does precipitated barium sulfate have?


The appearance of precipitated barium sulfate is a white amorphous powder, with a relative density of 4.50 (15 ℃) and a melting point of 1580 ℃. Due to its high refractive index (1.63-1.65), it exhibits a relatively white color and a certain degree of covering power. It is almost insoluble in water, ethanol, and acid, soluble in hot sulfuric acid. It is easy to form mixed crystals with potassium permanganate, calcium carbonate, or metal nitrates, and can be reduced to barium sulfide with carbon at high temperatures.

Yuan Lei's Little Knowledge | Application of Wet Mica Powder in Other Fields


Wet mica powder is a high-quality mineral filler made from high-quality mica raw materials, which are washed, impurity removed, soaked, crushed, low-temperature dried, and screened. Its unique production process maximizes the preservation of mica's sheet-like structure, large diameter to thickness ratio, high refractive index, high purity, high whiteness, high gloss, low sand and iron content, and other industrial characteristics that cannot be compared to dry process technology. The unique performance of wet mica powder has greatly improved its application in multiple industries such as plastics, paint, rubber, etc., and has a significant effect on improving product performance and reducing costs.

Yuan Lei's Little Knowledge | Application of Wet Mica Powder in Resin and Plastics


Wet mica powder is a high-quality powder with good whiteness, large diameter to thickness ratio, smooth surface, and uniform particle size obtained by special processes of crushing, drying, and grading mica fragments after washing, impurity removal, and purification. It is widely used in rubber, plastics, coatings, paints, cosmetics, and other industries.
