Learn about the precautions for storing barium sulfate

When storing barium sulfate, avoid contact with oxides. It is almost insoluble in water, ethanol and acid. It is soluble in hot concentrated sulfuric acid, and it is easy to agglomerate when dry. The staff should be well protected, and the workplace should have good ventilation conditions. Be careful to touch the skin and eyes, wash immediately with running water. Barium sulfate is a dispersible precipitated barium sulfate. It is soluble in hot sulfuric acid, insoluble in water, alcohol and other solvents. It has a narrow particle size distribution, good dispersibility and chemical inertness. Strong, good stability, acid and alkali resistance, moderate hardness, high relative density, high whiteness, can absorb harmful rays and other advantages, is a material with environmental protection functions

Barium sulfate should be stored in a cool and ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and heat sources. It should be stored separately from combustible materials and reducing agents, and should not be stored together. The storage area should be equipped with suitable materials to contain leaks

Product introduction: Barium sulfate (also known as: anti-radiation paint, protective paint) is mainly in the form of barite ore in nature, the molecular formula is BaSO4, pure barium sulfate is white and shiny, due to the influence of impurities and mixed substances. It is gray, light red, light yellow, etc. Barium sulfate with good crystallinity can also appear as transparent crystals. The hardness of barium sulfate is 3-3.5 (Mohs) and the specific gravity is 3.8-4.3. It has the characteristics of large specific gravity, low hardness and brittleness. Barium sulfate is chemically stable, insoluble in water, non-magnetic and toxic. Barium sulfate sand and protective coatings are composed of various elements in a certain proportion of particles and powders, and in combination with cement in a certain proportion, the walls can be plastered. Whether it is 325-mesh sulfuric acid powder, 800-mesh barium sulfate fine sand or relatively coarse barium sulfate granular, the barium content is as high as 99%, which contains a large amount of spot.
