PCC grades are widely used in food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industrys. In food applications, they are an appropriate calcium source but also an effective anti-caking or deacidifying agents. In cosmetics, they are predominantly used for their thickening effect, low abrasivity, polishing qualities and alkaline pH. In pharmaceuticals they are working either as active principle for their calcium content or as excipients in galenic preparations. 

In toothpastes PCC grades are predominantly used for their thickening effect and polishing effects with low abrasiveness, which is giving a good balance between polishing and cleaning effect.

The high purity of the PCC grades guarantees a high brightness of the toothpaste. The high specific surface and associated good water absorption property of PCC grades make it an excellent functional filing agent for toothpaste.
