Iron Oxide Pigments
Physical & Chemical Property
Iron oxide pigments (also named ferric oxide), chemical formula Fe2O3, reddish brown powder, soluble in acid. Iron oxide pigments contain the main component iron rust, which metal iron is reacted with moisture and oxygen within the environment. Iron oxide pigments could be applied to paints, ink, rubber industry as the catalyst, it could also be used in glass, crystal, metal as iron material, it has relatively stable chemical property with excellent UV absorbing performance, it is featured by good light & weather resistance, good dispersion, high tinting strength with bright luster.
Iron oxide pigments are broadly applied to building industry, such as colored cement, colored bricks, glazing tile, colored cement tile, concrete bricks, colored mortar, colored bitumen, building ceramics, glass ceramics, terrazzo, mosaic tile, artificial marble and wall printing, interior & exterior colored concrete surface, such as wall surface, floor, ceiling, column, road surface, parking lot, stairs, stations.
Iron oxide pigments are also widely used in paints and coating industry, such as waterborne coating coloring, powder coating coloring, epoxy paints, toy paints, decorating paints, furniture paints, electrophoresis paints, magnetic paints.
Iron oxide pigments are applied to rubber & plastic industry, for instance, the coloring of thermoset plastic, thermoplastic and rubber products, such as inner layer of tires.
Iron oxide pigments should be stored at a safety place with dry air, no moisture, non high temperature, it should also be isolated with acid and alkali, pigments with good package can be restored for 3 years under the above mentioned conditions.
