LANXESS launches new iron oxide red pigments

LANXESS IPG Paints and Coatings Competence Center head Stephan Spiegelhauer said: “This new generation of iron oxide pigments is a perfect addition to the top-selling range that LANXESS has been manufacturing by the Laux process for over 90 years at its Krefeld-Uerdingen site. 

"All the New Reds fulfil the high-quality demands of the paints and coatings industry and deliver high chromaticity and tinting strength."

LANXESS will be offering the new pigments in the mid-range colour segment as Bayferrox 520, Bayferrox 5272, Bayferrox 525 and Bayferrox 530.

To meet the demand for more yellow-shade red pigments, the company will be delivering new grades Bayferrox 510, Bayferrox TP 5278 and Bayferrox TP 5279. 

The speciality chemical producer further added that all of the new Bayferrox grades are produced using ‘Ningbo Process’ at the site in Ningbo, China.

Ningbo Process is said to have been developed to meet environmental standards as well as cover a complete colour spectrum of iron oxide pigments in the mid and yellow-shade red colour range.
