Barite

We offer barite for sale.

Barite (BaSO4) is a mineral consisting of barium sulfate commonly used as a weighting agent for drilling fluids in oil and gas exploration to suppress high formation pressures and prevent blowouts.

The high-density property of barite makes it useful as an aggregate in preparation of heavy concrete and cement used in heavy construction equipment and making ballasts for tire of tractors. Barite is also mixed with cement to make special radioactive storage containers to store radioactive materials.

Barite is geographically found in Spain, China, Australia, Morocco and the United States.
