Where can inorganic pigments be used?
Marketed under the names Bayferrox®, Colortherm® and Bayoxide®, the business unit’s iron oxide and chrome oxide pigments in
red, yellow, green, brown or black, are characterized by their outstanding colour stability, excellent light fastness, weather stability
and chemical resistance. These synthetically produced inorganic colour pigments are available in powder, micronized powder,
granules and compacted form. Powdered pigments are insoluble in water and dilute acids, resistant to cement lime/alkaline and
completely weather/light stable. The level of pigment agglomerates is significantly reduced in micronized pigment grades, which as
a result, exhibit high dispersibility. Industries and areas of application include construction, coatings, plastics and paper. Lanxess’ The
Bayoxide range encompasses products used for the manufacture of airbags, brake linings and refractory ceramics, pigments for toners
used in photocopiers and laser printers and absorbers for drinking and waste water purification.
