About product

Barium chloride dihydrate 25 kg - is a chemical raw material used in industry in the thermo-chemical treatment of iron alloys and for their purification. Also in the production of dyes, fireworks. In polymer processing as an additive to plastics, pigments. Used in the ceramic and paper industry and for the production of pesticides and insecticides.

Barium chloride dihydrate is a chemical raw material available in the form of a dihydrate with the chemical formula BaCl2*2H2O. It occurs as a colorless or white solid. It is soluble in water, insoluble in methanol, ethanol and ether. Colors the flame green. Barium chloride is an extremely poisonous substance. It is used in the chemical industry. Barium chloride used in industry for the production of dyes, pigments and fireworks. Also as a reagent for detecting sulfates in chemical compounds. In the blast furnace process for thermal and chemical treatment of iron alloys and for cleaning them of scale and impurities. As an active agent in the production of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and insecticides. Its high purity crystalline form is used as a chemical reagent in laboratories. In the ceramic industry, barium chloride is used to color glass and to lower the melting point of ceramics. Barium chloride purifies the water by preventing scale formation.
