Barytes Minerals  

Barytes, also called barite, is a mineral available worldwide, composed of barium sulfate (BaSO4).

its most striking feature is its heaviness. The specific gravity, or weight per unit volume, is 4 to 5, which is about twice that of most common industrial minerals.

Barite can occur in numerous colors; white, brown, yellow, red and gray are most common. The colors are the result of impurities such as iron, strontium and lead, and mineral contaminants such as clay and sand. Barite is insoluble in water and is resistant to acid attack.

Uses for Barytes

The largest application for barite is as a weighting agent in natural gas and oil field drilling muds. The density of barite helps in down-hole flow and bit lubrication.

One of its industrial end uses is as a weighting agent additive in cement, rubber and urethane foams. It is used in paint and powder coatings for metal protection and processing improvement. Barite is also used in friction products such as brake pads and clutch surfaces.

Barytes Products

Barite ore is ground to a range of products of the different sizes needed for the variety of applications. Most commercially available products are 200 or 325 mesh,  or finer, down to a few microns. The ore is selected and the process is controlled for one or more of the following properties: color, particle size, specific gravity and bulk density. Some barytes is available in a bleached form to improve color,  and there is a precipitated barium sulfate, referred to as “blanc fixe,” that finds use in high-end paints and coatings and in pharmaceutical applications.

Some of our most commonly used grades of Barytes are:

Grade Brightness Mesh Oil Absorption
Micro Barytes ESSW 94% 700 14
Barytes 325 SSW 12% 400 12
Oil Drilling-API grades - 200
