Micro Barytes

Barytes is chemically naturally occuring barium sulphate with nodular particle structure. Supplied in super snow white (SSW) and off colour and it is a fine flow powder. It is insoluble in water and has low oil absorption. This coupled wuth strong crystaline structure and high refractive index helps it to imprat strenght.

Barytes contain minium 93 to 97% barium sulphate.

Chemical Composition

BaSO4 : 93 -97%


Special Features :

Low oil demand.
Easy dispersibility.
Chemically insert. Unaffected by acids and alkali.
