5 and 25 Kilo Bag Option for Tri Calcium Phospahte

Overview: What is Tri Calcium Phospahte?

A white powder, Tri Calcium Phosphate is a calcium-based salt of phosphoric acid. It has a few other names such as TCP, bone phosphate of lime (BPL) and tribasic calcium phosphate.

The creation of Tri Calcium Phosphate occurs by treating hydroxyapatite with phosphoric acid and slaked lime. This treatment is then precipitated through double decomposition through soluble phosphates and calcium salts.

Following this, ATCP (Amorphous Tricalcium Phosphate) is calcified to create the final Tri Calcium Phosphate. Milling, Purification and more can also occur to ensure the product meets the correct standards.

Additionally, Calcium Phosphate is available in nature. This includes skeletons and teeth of vertebrate animals, milk, and a range of rocks (usually within Morocco, Israel, the Philippines, Egypt, and more).

Tri Calcium Phosphate has a range of product applications with various manufacturing routes and sources such as an anticaking agent, an acidity regulator, a supplement, and more.

As an anticaking agent, you can find Tri Calcium Phosphate in a range of products - this ranges from food and beverage to pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and beyond. Products that use Tricalcium Phosphate include toothpaste, antacids, baby powder, supplements, Low Fat Dairy Products, Tofu, Vegan Products and much more.
