Also known as Barite or Barium Sulphate, Barytes derives its name from the Greek word barys meaning ‘heavy’. With a high specific gravity of 4.5, Barytes is distinctive in non-metallic industrial minerals and has wide usage in numerous industrial and medicinal applications.
Valued for its high specific gravity, gamma and radiation blocking properties, low oil absorption in milled form, good dry brightness and opacification and it’s inertness and non-toxicity in medicinal applications our Barytes is used in range of applications including as a weighting agent in drilling muds, as a weighted pigment and opacifier in paints and coatings, in low and high density concrete and plasters to block radiation, in medicinal applications as a barium swallow in soft tissue imaging and as a weighted functional filler in papers, boards rubbers and various textiles.
