While a number of inorganic salts, calcium, magnesium and aluminum compounds have been used to formulate antacid tablets, calcium-based antacid tablets have become the norm. In addition to being effective acid neutralizers, calcium antacids also serve as a source of calcium, giving them a dual purpose. They are most commonly made in the form of chewable tablets, but swallowable or effervescent types can also be found. Tableted antacids are popular for occasional heartburn; they are handy to carry around, easy to take, and moderate in cost.
Calcium carbonate is the usual form of calcium used in these antacid tablets, and for a variety of good reasons: calcium carbonate is an effective neutralizing alkali, has a low purchase price making it economical, and provides a highly concentrated, highly bioavailable source of elemental calcium to help prevent osteoporosis. Techfil offers a high purity pharmaceutical grade calcium carbonate which has the ideal particle size.

Pumice Grains have been used in liquid, solid and gel abrasive hand soaps for decades. Today Pumice Powders and Grains are a natural alternative to plastic microbeads. Pumice is now widely used in foot scrubs, hand cleaners, body & shower gels, facial scrubs and even kitchen surface cleaners.
In soap, Pumice offers a light abrasive quality which easily removes almost any grease or grime. Because Pumice is a soft media and a natural mineral, it isn’t harsh or toxic to people or the environment.
Moderation and a light touch are key when applying any abrasive soap, cleaner or polish. Applying too much pressure while applying an abrasive cleaner can cause scratches or redness. Instead, use a very light application of a scrub and wash and dry the cleansed area thoroughly. If you are polishing a car remove any residue with a soft lint-free cloth. Always use circular motions when applying abrasive soap, scrubs, cleaner and polish to prevent “burning” an area from concentrated actions.
Today Pumice is used in more than just abrasive soap and its ability as a versatile mild abrasive additive is continually being developed in new markets.

Choosing the most effective food grade calcium product in a formulation is a critical decision. Food grade calcium carbonate has the highest concentration of elemental calcium 40% by weight. Many studies have shown that calcium from calcium carbonate in food is readily absorbed by the body. Because of this calcium carbonate is more economical to use and the food additive provides the nutritional properties required by formulators. Typical food grade calcium carbonate applications include:
|o Breakfast Cereal/Nutritional Barso Baked Foods
o Fortified Beverages
o Cookies & Crackers
o Soups & Sauces
o Food Processing
Techfil supply food grade calcium carbonate which is a naturally mined, ultra-pure form with typical assays greater than 99% to meet demanding industry standards, and more specifically, your own high purity standards. Our food grade calcium carbonate grades meet the requirements specified by the Food Chemical Codex 4th Edition, EP & USP and can be used in the most critical applications. Techfil are one of the top food grade calcium carbonate suppliers and consider our products in your next calcium product formula.
