Barium Carbonate

Barium carbonate is a chemical compound used in rat poison, bricks, ceramic glazes and cement. It is widely used in the ceramics industry as an ingredient in glazes.It acts as a flux, a matting and crystallizing agent and combines with certain coloring oxides to produce unique colors not easily attainable by other means. Its use is somewhat controversial since some claim that it can leach from glazes into food and drink. In the brick, tile, earthenware and pottery industries barium carbonate is added to clays to precipitate soluble salts that cause efflorescence.

Bentonite is an absorbent aluminium phyllosilicate, generally impure clay consisting mostly of montmorillonite. There are different types of bentonites and their names depend on the dominant elements, such as potassium (K), sodium (Na), calcium (Ca), and aluminum (Al). As noted in several places in the geologic literature, there are some nomenclatorial problems with the classification of bentonite clays. Bentonite usually forms from weathering of volcanic ash, most often in the presence of water. However, the term bentonite, as well as a similar clay called tonstein, have been used for clay beds of uncertain origin. For industrial purposes, two main classes of bentonite exist: sodium and calcium bentonite. In stratigraphy and tephrochronology, completely devitrified (weathered volcanic gla

Cadmium Oxide

Cadmium Oxide is an inorganic compound. It is one of the main precursors to other cadmium compounds. It crystallizes in a cubic rock salt lattice like sodium chloride, with octahedral cation and anion centers. It is produced by burning elemental cadmium in air. Cadmium oxide is used in cadmium plating baths, electrodes for storage batteries, cadmium salts, catalyst, ceramic glazes, phosphors, and nematocide, used as an ingredient for electroplating baths, pigments, transparent conductive material. It is also used as chemical raw material for glass and ceramic industry.

Cadmium Sulfide

Cadmium sulfide is an inorganic compound. It occurs in nature with two different crystal structures as the rare minerals greenockite and hawleyite, but is more prevalent as an impurity substituent in the similarly structured zinc ores sphalerite and wurtzite, which are the major economic sources of cadmium. As a compound that is easy to isolate and purify, it is the principal source of cadmium for all commercial applications. It is mainly used as a pigment. Cadmium sulfide and cadmium selenide are used in manufacturing of photoresistors sensitive to visible and near infrared light. In thin-film form, cadmium sulfide can be combined with other layers for use in certain types of solar cells. It was also one of the first semiconductor materials to be used for thin-film transistors (TFTs). However interest in compound semiconductors for TFTs largely waned after the emergence of amorphous silicon technology in the late 1970s. It is also used as chemical raw material for glass and ceramic industry.

The carbonate mineral calcite is a calcium carbonate corresponding to the formula CaCO3 and is one of the most widely distributed minerals on the Earth's surface. Calcite crystals are hexagonal-rhombohedral, though actual calcite rhombohedrons are rare as natural crystals. It is used as chemical raw material for glass and ceramic industry.

Calcium Carbonate

Calcium carbonate is a chemical compound. It is a common substance found in rock in all parts of the world, and is the main component of shells of marine organisms, snails, pearls, and eggshells. It is the active ingredient in agricultural lime, and is usually the principal cause of hard water. Calcium carbonate is commonly used medicinally as a calcium supplement or as an antacid, but excessive consumption can be hazardous. The main use of calcium carbonate is in the construction industry. It is used in the oil industry in drilling fluids as a formation bridging and filtercake sealing agent and may also be used as a weighting material to increase the density of drilling fluids to control downhole pressures. It is widely used as an extender in paints and as a filler in plastics. It is also used in adhesives, sealants, and decorating fillers. Calcium carbonate is a common ingredient for many glazes/ceramics in its white powdered form.

Potassium Dichromate

Potassium dichromate is a common inorganic chemical reagent, most commonly used as an oxidizing agent in various laboratory and industrial applications. It can be used for cleaning glassware and etching materials and it is used as an ingredient in cement in which it retards the setting of the mixture and improves its density and texture. It is also used to tan leather which is used for footwear. It has important uses in photography and in photographic screen printing, where it is used as an oxidizing agent together with a strong mineral acid.
