Barytes / Barium Sulphate

Baryte is a naturally occurring mineral consisting of Barium Sulphate (BaSO4)and  having high whiteness.  The main properties of Barytes include high specific gravity (4.5), low solubility and non-toxic nature. It has low oil absorption and it has high resistance to acids and alkalies.

Natural Barytes are generally categorized into two different grades viz. Snow White and Off-color Barytes. Snow white Barytes is mainly used in the Paint, Paper, Rubber and Chemical industry, while the Off-color Barytes is used in the Oil and Gas drilling operations.
