Barium Carbonate is a superfine precipitated mineral compound. It is routinely utilized at low percentage addition rates to combat the effects of soluble sulphate "scumming" which is often seen on fired ceramic products. The chemical reaction in the clay bodies renders these sulphates as insoluble preventing their migration to the product surface during the drying and firing process and, in turn, enhances the natural clay color.
Barium Carbonate is available in both powder and suspended slurry form. Suspended liquid products are available as either 60% solids (CB60) and 70% solids (CB70) and are available for delivery in either 1000 litre IBC containers or in bulk silo tankers.
