Barite

Description

Barite is a moderately soft crystalline mineral form of barium sulphate (BaSO4 ). Approximately, 80% barytes produced worldwide is used for oil and gas drilling as a weighting agent in the drill mud, primarily to prevent the explosive release of gas and oil during drilling. Its unique physical and chemical properties like heavyness, high specific gravity, chemical and physical inertness, very low solubility and magnetic neutrality. It appears
from colorless to white and light shades of yellow, blue, brown and grey. Aadesh Mines And Minerals provides you complete range of Bayrite from ore form to powder form for filler, extender and aggregate, manufacturing of ceramic and glass. It is used in Oil & Gas industry, Chemical industry, Paint, Plastic, Automobile, TV screen, Rubber, Glass, Ceramic and other industries
