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 Foodso Fortified Beverageso Cookies & Crackers
o Soups & Sauces
o Food Processing
o Vegan Products
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.

Pumice fine powder is being used increasingly in the paint and coatings industry, this is an alternative to traditional fillers due to its low density and unique particle morphology. Pumice powder provides Interior paints with Burnish resistance, flatting, low sheen and low film porosity. The use of Pumice in exterior paints and stains provides outstanding tint retention, mildew resistance acid resistant giving frost free surface and increased cracking and flaking resistance. Pumice powder can also be mixed into emulsion paints to change their colour or simply mixed with water to use as a wash. The hardness, chemical resistance, and abrasive qualities of pumice powder, also make it deal for floor and deck coatings. Pool deck coatings have been successfully formulated with pumice powder and in some cases pumice grains for a number of years.

Pumice Filter Media is now recognised as the filter media of choice when replacing anthracite in multimedia filters, rapid gravity filters and trickling filters. This filter media gives exceptionally long filter run times and significantly reduces backwash costs due to its lower density. Our Water Treatment Division is headed up by our Chief Process Engineer who has over 30 years in this field.
