Pharmaceutical Barium Sulfate

OVERVIEW

Barium sulfate is a chemically inert, high density mineral with a low surface area and is also a radiopaque agent. These characteristics make barite a perfect, high-performance filler for many applications including coatings, TiO2 extension, industrial, and X-ray contrast applications.

Cimbar supplies calcium carbonate as a fine white powder or granulation for use in industrial and pharmaceutical applications in High Bright, Off White, and USP Pharmaceutical grades.

PRODUCT LINES

To accommodate an ever-expanding range of applications Cimbar offers several Barium Sulfate product lines:

  • USP (Pharmaceutical)
  • Cimbar (High Brightness)

Bariscan grades are produced using a proprietary process to enhance the purity of the natural barium sulfate ore. Bariscan Elite and Bariscan Ultra Barium Sulfate meet and exceed the requirements for Barium Sulfate of the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and European Pharmacopeia (EP). Cimbar ‘s Pharmaceutical Plant is registered with the US FDA as an active pharmaceutical ingredients manufacturer.

Miti-Wite grades are produced using a proprietary process to enhance the purity of the natural barium sulfate ore. Miti-Wite products are available in a variety of particle sizes and feature high brightness, high specific gravity, very low solubility, and excellent chemical inertness. Miti-Wite is ideal for a variety of formulations where a low pH grade is required. These high purity, high brightness, and low pH barium sulfate products are beneficial for use in many application areas.
