Acidspar accounts for a major fluorspar market share due to its high usage in the chemical sector

Acidspar is the highest grade of fluorspar and contains at least 97% calcium fluoride. It is the most sought-after type of fluorspar in the market due to its high purity level and is primarily used in the chemical sector to produce hydrofluoric acid (HF), which is a precursor to almost all fluorine compounds, including refrigerants, polymers (like PTFE, Teflon), and a wide range of industrial and pharmaceutical chemicals. The demand for acidspar is driven by its essential role in these high-value applications, making it hold the highest share in the fluorspar market.

 

Metspar, or metallurgical spar, contains a lower concentration of calcium fluoride, typically between 60% and 85%. Although it is of a lower grade compared to acidspar, metspar is crucial in the steel-making process as a flux to remove impurities and it helps in the production of cleaner, stronger steel and is also used in the manufacture of aluminium.
