Properties & uses

Hematite is commonly used in primer paint since its high density, fairly large particle size, and low oil absorption allow heavy loading; in addition, it provides some protection against corrosion [industrial maintenance finishes for railroad equipment, bridge paints, etc.]

Finely ground Hematite is used because of its abrasiveness [jeweler’s rouge; ophthalmic polishing] and its high SG [weighting agent in drilling muds; high-density aggregates].
