Synthetic Yellow Iron Oxides from Cathay Industries are high-quality inorganic pigments suitable for wide range of demanding colorant applications. Typical applications include architectural paints, industrial coatings, product finishes, wood stains, plastics, rubber, ceramics, inks, paper, concrete, stucco, cement and mortar.
The excellent dispersion characteristics and high tint strength of our Synthetic Yellow Iron Oxides make them particularly useful in many of today’s high performance coatings. These cost-effective pigments eliminate the need for more expensive dispersant additives and pre-dispersed liquid pigment concentrates.
