Calcium carbonate is one of the preferred fillers for the paper industry. This research compared the physical and chemical properties of calcium carbonates produced by different methods and their use with a novel rosin sizing system. The effectiveness of a polymeric retention agent, which flocculates particles during paper production, has also been examined.
