Barium Carbonate is extremely useful in the manufacture of clay and ceramic products, because of its ability to convert soluble sulfates (typically calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium) into insoluble barium sulfate. Barium Carbonate powder grades can be used to prevent spotting and significantly reduce the tendency for efflorescence to occur. These advantages make it a popular additive in the heavy clay/ceramic industry, such as in the manufacture of clay roof tiles and facing bricks.
