White to pale grey powder, odourless, deliquescent in air, soluble in water, chemically stable.
Dithiophosphate BA is an excellent collector with frothing performance in flotation of nonferrous metallic minerals. It exhibits specific properties for separating silver, copper, lead and activated zinc sulfide minerals and difficult polymetallic ores. The collective performance of Dithiophosphate BA is weak for the pyrite and magnetizing pyrite, but is strong for the galena in the weak base ore pulp. It is also useful in the flotation of nickel and antimony sulfide minerals and is especially useful in the flotation of nickel sulfide mineral with low flotability, mixture of sulfide-oxide nickel ores and middlings of sulfide with gangue. Dithiophosphate BA is also helpful in recovery of platinum, gold and silver.
