Chemical Description

  • Barite is a white crystalline powder, and it is the most common barium-rich sulfate mineral.
  • This mineral barite is highly insoluble in water and other organic solvents.
  • Barium sulfate is extensively used across different industries due to its inertness and good opacity.
  • It is also known as Blanc Fixe and Baryte. It is a totally inert, odorless, and tasteless chemical.
  • Its high opacity makes it best suited for use in industries where more transparency or opacity is required, such as plastics, paint, and coatings.
  • It is a highly inert material and shows full resistance during chemical reactions, providing top-class longevity and stability in different compounds.
  • Its high density makes it a suitable material for medical imaging procedures like CT scans and X-rays. It is given to patients in liquid form, and then it passes through the targeted area, making the images clear.
  • Barium sulfate is a non-toxic and environmentally friendly chemical. It imposes very low health risks for humans and does not toxify the ecosystem.
  • Its major use is as a weighing agent in the drilling of mud for oil and gas extraction.
  • Its usage is as an essential raw material in the extraction of metal barium and its other compounds.
  • Barium metal is widely used as a raw material and filler in the synthesis of paper, plastic, rubber, paint, inks, pigments, and textile materials.
  • Barium sulfate is also used in building materials, electronics, glass, metallurgy, and in televisions.
  • This 98%- 99% pure chemical is available in 25 kg bags, which have dimensions 52X34X16 cm and are covered with PVC plastic bags.
  • This is an agriculture and industrial grade material with 4.5 density.
  • A high melting point of 1580°C makes it a highly stable compound for usage and transportation.
  • With minimal safety requirements, this material can be stored in a well-ventilated and dry place to keep the quality intact.
