What is the function of Barium as an additive?

Not open for further replies.
When you use the oil as an enema, it allows the doctors to see your lower GI tract.

Actually, I have no idea. But I couldn't resist the barium enema comment.
Barium is ususally in the form of a Barium Sulfonate.

It is a multi-functional additive used as:

1. Soot detergent (in some diesel oils)
2. Metal Protector and anti-rust

Barium is also used in liquid and spray-on metal protectors.
Mola, Can it be used to suspend contaminates as well. I was thinking that it is added to ATF to suspend clutch particles??? Am I way off base?
