For Sibelco Europe Minerals Plus we distribute Barium sulphate, Quartz, Cristobalite and Nepheline Syenite (Minex)
Barium Sulphate( Barytes) or BaSO4 is the most common barium mineral and is found in a pure form but also together with many other minerals.
Barium sulphate is widely used in the industry as an extender in the powder coatings, marine paints, can coatings, plastics, printing inks and cellular foams.
We deliver the very white micronised Portaryte grades including coated versions for powder coatings, plastics, printing inks and paints.
Off-white micronised grades are available for high performance primers and undercoats with coarser grades for high build coatings, elastomers, plastics, friction materials and acoustic (sound absorption) applications.
Coated versions offer the following advantages:
In these applications are also Quartz (Silverbond) and Crisobalite (Sibelite) and Nepheline Syenite common minerals.
Nepheline Syenite is sold under the brand name Minex.
MINEX® functional fillers and extenders are proven performance enhancers in a broad range of paints, coatings, adhesives, sealants, and inks. Excellent brightness, tint retention, and weatherability can be achieved in exterior paints. Improved color, sheen uniformity, chemical and stain resistance, and durability result when MINEX is used in interior paint formulations. MINEX is easily dispersed in all conventional vehicle systems, and low oil absorption permits high loadings in adhesives, sealants, and aqueous and alkyd based paints.
