Global iron oxide pigment producer Cathay Industries has introduced CATHAYRED, a renewed and extended range of precipitated red iron oxide pigments for the paint and coating industries.Continuous refinement and enhancement of Cathay’s proprietary wet precipitation process has led to this new range of red iron oxides, which reportedly can effectively match the previously unattainable color space of Copperas Reds produced by thermal decomposition of ferrous sulphate. CATHAYRED encompasses a wide range of high performance precipitated reds with a unique hue, and chroma from salmon to dark red and blue shades.These, Cathay adds, feature outstanding color and physical properties which are easy to wet, with high dispersibility, are chemically stable and can be used in a wide range of applications, including paint and coatings, rubber and plastic products, textile finishes, building materials and ceramics.
