Barium carbonate (BaCO3) occurs in nature as the mineral witherite. Also, it can be synthesized from barite mineral by reduction barium sulphate (BaSO4) with carbon sources. It is used in electroceramics (BaTiO3 etc), ceramics, paints, enamels, rubber and certain plastics, oil drilling wells, manufacturing fireworks, and rat poisons.
BaCO3 is very important chemical for brick and tile producers for solving efflorescence and scumming problems. Barium carbonate is used for removing sulfates in phosporic acid production. BaCO3 with higher purity levels (> 99,5%) is usefull for electroceramic industry.
Entekno produce high purity (upto 3N) and morphology controlled BaCO3 from domestic resources to cover a wide range of features for use in many applications.
Morphology controlled barium carbonate powder has been developed by Entekno Materials Corp.
