What is the instruction of barium sulfate?
Created date: 2019/07/25

If you are familiar with chemical industry, you’ll know that even the pure word  "barium sulfate” has many types of products, and each type has its own benefits. Therefore, you must need an instruction of barium sulfate as soon as possible.

Introduction To Barium Sulfate

Barium sulfate is processed by high purity barite. It has excellent chemical inertia, it cannot be dissolute in water and acid, except hot concentrated sulfuric acid. It is almost insoluble in water, ethanol, and acid, soluble in hot Sulphur acid. With Potassium Permanganate, calcium carbonate or mixed crystal made of metal nitrate. With carbon at high temperature reduction of barium sulfate.

It is used in painting, plastics, the roosting plastic powder coatings, rubber,  glass and many other products widely. 

Beware! It is the only non-toxic common barium salt harmless towards people, which can be reduced to barium sulfate and carbon dioxide at a high temperature above 600 Compost of other barium salt has poisonousness, don’t touch them with hands directly.


Types Of Barium Sulfate

Our company Shaanxi Fuhua Chemical Co., Ltd mainly has three kinds of these products. They can’t be classified by appearance as their form is powder, but them have different functions.

  • Refined precipitated barium sulphate

With the general nature of precipitated barium sulfate: high fineness and purity, less bulk density, surface treatment of the particle greatly improve the dispersity and affinity with the application interface.

It can be used as the raw materials or fillers in oil paint, battery ,the Surface  smear  medicament of  the Printing paper and copper board , and sizing agent for textile industry. As clarifying agent, it can play a role of anti-foaming and increase the glossy of glass products. It also can be used as an anti-radiation protective wall material. In addition, it’s widely used in pottery , enamel, spices and paints, etc. What’s more, it can be used as the raw materials to produce other barium salts.

  • Superfine precipitated barium sulphate

With the general nature of precipitated barium sulphate: high fineness and purity, suitable distribution of the particle size, the excellent applicability can meet the special requirement of user.

It widely used as filled object for paint, printing ink, rubber, plastic and insulating tape. Also used in industries of palette, china, storage battery, porcelain enamel, glass and spice etc.

  • Modified precipitated barium sulphate

With the general nature of precipitated barium sulphate: high fineness and purity, good fluidity, surface treatment of the particle greatly improves the fluidity, dispersity and affinity with the application interface.

As special functional filler with modified treatment, modified precipitated barium sulphate can be used for powder coatings, plastics, paints, inks, pigments, rubber, paper, batteries and other products with special requirements. It is especially effective when used for friction materials to significantly improve the transparency, physical properties, glossiness and lower the cost.

Our product is mainly classified into three kinds: Refined precipitated barium sulphate, Superfine precipitated barium sulphate, Modified precipitated barium sulphate.

They are produced in advanced chemical precipitation method, with good physical properties, low mechanical impurity, even fineness. The white powder or paste, non-toxic, insoluble in water, soluble in fuming Sulphur acid, stable chemical property.

It can endow the materials with high density and surface finish, therefore widely used in coatings, plastics, rubber, chips, friction plate, ceramics, glass, electronics, cosmetics, pharmacy and food etc.


Announcements Of Barium Sulfate

  • Avoid isolation and tear

Although the chemical properties of barium sulfate are stable, excessive tearing and isolation may lead to a decrease in barium sulfate quality.

  • Keep in dry and ventilating place

Barium sulfate is almost insoluble in water, ethanol, organic solvents, acids and bases, soluble in boiling hot concentrated sulfuric acid, and it has good wettability, which means it can get wat easily. Drying it is cumbersome and can cause damage in the process.

  • Don' t mix with colorful matter

Superfine barium sulfate not only has transparency and excellent dispersion, but also as an organic coloring pigment dispersing agent, so it will be applied in the paint, and compared with the past, you can get bright color has a shiny thick color coating. If mixed with colorful matter, it will be no longer effective.


These all for instruction of barium sulfate. With the progress of technology, the purity of barium sulfate is further improved and its application is more and more extensive, it is definitely a wise choice to cooperate with our company.
