Precipitated Barium Sulfate is a high brightness, low oil absorption, inert extender that is well suited for a variety of application including powder coatings, thermoplastics, elastomers, fiber, paper, ink and pigment preparations.
Precipitated Barium Sulfate has a Mohs hardness of 3 and is very low in abrasion. It exhibits a continuous, high diffuse reflectance of light, not only in the visible range, but also far into the UV and IR ranges. It is the ideal extender of colored systems. In coatings, Precipitated Barium Sulfate is recommended in high gloss, acid-resistant formulations.
Pigment Grade These fine white barites are natural, select, white, high quality material designed for use in paints and coatings, plastics and other applications requiring a white and/or acid resistant high density filler.
BaCl2 is mainly used in the purification of Brine solution in caustic chlorine plants, in the manufacture of heat treatment salts, case hardening of steel, in the manufacture of pigments, in the manufacture of other Barium Salts, Blanc Fix, Barium Hydroxide, etc. It is also used as flux in the manufacture of magnesium metal, making color kinescope, magnetic-materials, fluorescent glass, ceramics, etc.
