MICACEOUS IRON OXIDE
|Micaceous Iron Oxide||Fe2O3||5.5 – 6||Brownish red||~ 4.8|
Properties & Uses
Being a derivative of iron, it is red in color. The protective properties of Micaceous Iron Oxide(MIO) derive from its flake-like particle structure and chemical inertness. It is mainly used in marine paints and can be easily mixed with other colors. Micaceous iron oxides are very well known and often used pigments in the protective and marine coatings industry for many years.
Micaceous Iron oxide (MIO) or specular hematite, a plate like a pigment, utilizes its lamellar film structure to contribute to corrosion control.
