Calcium oxide and calcium carbonate products are used in both glass manufacturing and fiberglass manufacturing applications. Glass and fiberglass are obtained from the fusion of several inorganic materials. Silica sand, soda ash, calcium oxide and calcium or dolomitic limestone together represent a majority of the raw materials used in the production of glass and fiberglass.
Mississippi Lime’s Pulverized Quicklime and CalCarb® Calcium Carbonate product families are critical raw materials in both glass and fiberglass manufacturing applications. The high purity and controlled sizing of Mississippi Lime’s calcium products have set the standard for these key raw materials for many years.
