Ca
Calcium

Calcium

In addition to its vital functions in the body, calcium is used to increase the yield and quality of industrial products. Frequently used as a substitute for Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Lithium (Li) or Cobalt (Co), calcium is considered an excellent conductor of electricity. In addition to its historical use in the construction industry in the preparation of lime, calcium is still used in the building trade, but also in the plastics, glass and ceramics industries and in the production of cast iron. With the optimised use of alloys, calcium offers a wide range of possibilities in rapid chemical processing.
