Baryte, also precipitated

Baryte is a mineral consisting mainly of barium sulfate (BaSO4). 

We offer natural Barytes as well as precipitated grades.

The Baryte group consists of natural barium sulfate, celestine, anglesite and anhydrite. Baryte itself is generally white or colorless, and is the main source of barium. 

We are able to supply high quality Barytes. Beside standard qualities we can offer also snow white precipitated grades with different sieve analyses. 

All of our Barytes show the following advantages compared to many other Barytes

  • a low SiO2 content and
  • an extremely low content of heavy metals.

For friction materials "close-cuts" are available, i.e. grades with a reduced content of fines or specified particle size distributions.

The main application is for drilling purposes and also as heavy filler with a density of approx. 4.5 g/cm3 for paints, lacquers, other coatings and many more products. 

Due to its low Mohs hardness (3-3.5) it is giving good lubrication at room temperature.
