Cimbar Performance Minerals is the largest producer of Barium Sulfate in the world. Barium sulfate is a chemically inert, high density mineral with a low surface area. Barium Sulfate is also a radiopaque agent. These characteristics make barium sulfate a perfect, high-performance filler for many applications including coatings, TiO2 extension, industrial, and X-ray contrast applications
To accommodate an ever expanding range of applications Cimbar offers several Barium Sulfate product lines including USP (pharmaceutical), Cimbar (high brightness), Barimite (off-white) and Bara (economy) products. Cimbar also offers API barite options for drilling fluid applications. We are the only major producer of API barite for drilling fluid applications who is not also a drilling fluids producer.
The Cimbar Barium Sulfate grades are made using only the highest quality white, natural barium sulfate ore. Their unique properties of fine grind, high specific gravity, low solubility and chemical inertness make them ideal for many applications.
