Many performance indicators of ultrafine barium sulfate (such as specific gravity, whiteness, oil absorption, refractive index, particle size, etc.) are close to titanium white, and have good dispersion and suitable particle size distribution range. In order to make titanium dioxide effectively play its covering performance, adding an appropriate amount of ultrafine barium sulfate in titanium dioxide can control the distance between titanium dioxide particles and prevent the occurrence of optical flocculation phenomenon, so as to reduce the amount of titanium dioxide without affecting the hiding power of the product, and the gloss of the finished product, weather resistance, acid and alkali resistance and other indicators have been improved.



(1) Application in primer

Ultrafine barium sulfate has a large specific surface area and a better particle size distribution range. It can be applied to the primer with less binder to make the product have better application and rheology. Used for automotive primer, even if you add more ultrafine barium sulfate can get a smooth and dense coating.

(2) Application in topcoat

Ultrafine barium sulfate is an inert filler with good weather resistance. It is used as a filler for topcoat and can play a long-term protective role even when exposed to an environment that is violated. Because the product has the characteristics of good gloss and small particle size, it can improve the fluidity, surface smoothness, hardness and color stability of the paint.

(3) application in emulsion paint

Due to the excellent characteristics of ultrafine barium sulfate, it can be used in high gloss and mercerized texture paints and "acid-proof" emulsion paints. The paint can also play a role in corrosion protection even when exposed to the atmosphere of industrial areas.

(4) in wood, decorative paint application

Ultrafine barium sulfate has the characteristics of small particle size and low absorption light, especially suitable for the surface paint, varnish and natural lacquer liquid body filler for wood decoration. The products are used for wood decoration, with good gloss, chemical corrosion resistance and weather resistance.

(5) Application in powder coatings

Ultrafine barium sulfate has the characteristics of large filling amount, good brightness, good leveling, strong light retention and good compatibility with all pigments. It is the most ideal filler for powder coatings.

Yuan Lei's Little Knowledge | Performance Requirements and Types of Fillers for Coatings


Fillers in coatings are usually white or slightly colored pigments with a refractive index less than 1.7. It has the basic physical and chemical properties of pigments used in coatings, but due to its refractive index being similar to the film-forming material, it is transparent in coatings and does not have the coloring and covering power of coloring pigments. It is an indispensable pigment in coatings.

Yuan Lei's Little Knowledge | Application Effects of Different Mineral Powder Materials in Coatings


In architectural coatings, commonly used mineral materials include barium sulfate, calcium carbonate, kaolin, mica powder, talc powder, quartz powder, silica micro powder, transparent powder, glass powder, wollastonite powder, etc. Reasonable application of various mineral materials can effectively improve or enhance the performance of coatings. Let's take a look at the application of different mineral materials in coatings.

Yuan Lei's Little Knowledge | Characteristics of Mineral Materials


Mineral materials refer to the material products obtained by processing and transforming natural minerals (mainly non-metallic minerals) or rocks as the main raw materials, or minerals or rocks that can be directly used as materials and aim to utilize their main physical and chemical properties. This meaning mainly includes the following four aspects: first, natural minerals and rocks that can be directly utilized or processed to be utilized; Secondly, finished or semi-finished materials made mainly from natural non-metallic minerals and rocks through physical and chemical reactions; Thirdly, artificially synthesized minerals or rocks; Fourthly, the direct utilization targets of these materials are mainly their own physical or chemical properties, not limited to individual chemical elements.
