Microwate™ is manufactured from a celestite ore, a natural form of Strontium Sulfate.
Microwate™ is processed from select deposits of naturally occurring blends of strontium and barium sulfates. Microwate is closely graded to ensure consistent chemistry and color. The chemically inert powder is white, odorless and non-toxic.
Microwate™ is similar in its properties to barytes. The similarity with barium sulfate products makes Microwate™ an ideal and cost effective alternative in many uses. Microwate™ is designed for the plastics, paint and coatings and cellular foam markets.
