What is Barytes? - Benefits of Barytes
Barytes is an environmentally friendly material as it is a natural product and not manufactured; and not subject to registration under the EU REACH regulations. Substitution potential exists but the alternates in the oil industry (eg ilmenite, haematite) are economically less attractive. Cheaper alternate ground limestone or clays are sometimes used on economy grounds in some filler applications where quality or technical considerations are less stringent.
