The inorganic compound Barium Sulfate, often known as Baritop, Barosperse, and Barite has the chemical formula BaSO4. It is a white crystalline substance that is odorless and water-insoluble. It is found in the mineral Barite, which is the most common commercial source of Barium and barium-based products. Its principal applications take advantage of its white opaque look and great density. About 80% of the world's Barium Sulfate production end up as an oil-well drilling fluid.It raises the density of the drilling fluid leading to an increase in the hydrostatic pressure in the well and lowers the risk of a blowout. Chemically pure or Laboratory reagents are the two terms often used to describe Lab Grade chemicals. Lab Grade chemicals do not meet any accepted quality or purity requirements such as the ACS Grade, the USP Grade, and the FCC Grade, despite their acceptable purity. In the United States of America (USA), Lab Alley is selling its high-quality Barium Sulfate Powder, Lab Grade online at laballey.com. Due to its high purity, this Lab Alley product is highly recommended for labs and commercial applications.
