MnCO3 technical



Technical manganese carbonate with about 44% manganese content (Mn).

Also available as an ultra-fine variant with an average grain size of approx. 2μm

Please also note our fertilizer quality.



Manganese carbonate is usually pink to light brown and odorless. Manganese carbonate is also found in nature as a mineral rhodochrosite.


Typical fields of application are e.g. in the:

  • Manganese phosphating or tri-cation phosphating (for example, according to DIN EN ISO 9717)
  • Slip phosphating (e.g. cold forming)
  • Fertilizer industry
  • Manufacture of ferrites and other manganese compounds
  • Coloring of ceramics (purple to violet)
  • Battery preparation (cathodes for lithium-ion batteries)



Multi-layer paper / PE bags with 25 kg net on pallets of 1,000 kg net, wrapped with stretch film.

Bags printed and labeled with manufacturer's logo.


The ultra-fine version in 250 lbs (approx. 113 kg) cardboard drums on pallets of 1,000 lbs (approx. 454 kg)



In closed storage rooms, a temperature of 20 ° C and ± 80% relative humidity, the manufacturer recommends a maximum storage period of 6 months. (In original sealed packaging.)

Manganese carbonate is subject to a continuous and light-affected oxidation. Depending on the storage conditions, the proportion of manganese dioxide (MnO2) increases over time and, depending on the application, the solubility is impaired.



Generally, manganese carbonate is available from stock.
