Precipitated Barium Sulphate Market: Overview
Barium sulfate is a white crystalline solid that is odorless and insoluble in water. An inorganic compound with the chemical formula BaSO4, it occurs as inorganic, mineral barite (heavy spar), which is the main commercial source of barium and materials prepared from it. Precipitated barium sulphate is a function filler which is superfine in nature and exhibits a low absorption threshold. It occurs as colorless orthorhombic crystals or a white amorphous powder, and does not dissolve in water, ethanol, and acid but is soluble in hot concentrated sulfuric acid. It allows insulation, prevents agglomeration & flocculation, and ultimately provides improved pigmentation efficiency to the surface upon which it is applied. Precipitated barium sulfate is synthetic barium sulfate precipitated with a specified particle size. The naturally occurring type of barium sulfate is used commonly. For applications requiring pure white colors, barium sulfate is obtained by precipitation as “blanc-fixe” (permanent white).
Precipitated barium sulfate is widely applicable in the paints & coatings, pigments, paper, plastic, rubber, inks, leather, and ceramics industries for its purity, low oil absorption, high burning point, insolubility in water, precise PH value, longer shelf life, non-toxicity, and effectiveness. Precipitated barium sulfate is stringently tested and can be significantly used for industrial paints, enamels, plastic material, adhesives, coatings, and sealants. Demand for precipitated barium sulfate is rising owing to the increasing application of its products.
Precipitated Barium Sulphate Market: Dynamics and Trends
Precipitated barium sulfate is added to various types of synthetic resin (such as acryl resin) as a diffusing material for transmitted and reflected light. Precipitated barium sulfate is a white crystalline solid odorless and insoluble in water. It transpires as the inorganic barite (heavy spar), which is the salable source of barium and materials prepared from barium. The precipitated barium sulfate It is used in white plastic raw material such as resin pellets and opalescence sheets. The precipitation of barium sulfate from an aqueous solutions of barium chloride and sodium sulfate is investigated experimentally in a continuous “Y mixture” to avoid any mixing influence. An increasing preference for plastic products among consumers is driving this market globally. Precipitated barium producers are targeting the coatings industry for trade. Due to the burgeoning coatings and rubber industries, the precipitated barium sulfate market is likely to expand substantially in the near future.
