As a true one-stop-shop supplier, LANXESS delivers a comprehensive product range of iron oxides for the construction industry. This includes Bayferrox® red, yellow, black and brown iron oxides as well as green shades based on Colortherm® chromium oxides.

Our top-selling products such as Bayferrox® 110 and 130 (red), Bayferrox® 330 and 340 (black) as well as Bayferrox® 920 (yellow) are tried and trusted and widely-used on a large scale. In addition to these and other standard products, we are able to provide customized shades, thanks to our regional blending sites in all regions of the world.

Years of observing the performance of colored concrete products exposed to different location-specific and climate-specific conditions have proven that our Bayferrox® and Colortherm® products exhibit particularly high durability due to their color stability and resistance properties.

LANXESS pigments for construction materials are available in four delivery forms: powder, granules, compacted and liquid pigment dispersions. The various delivery forms ensure the best cost-benefit ratio in customer-specific applications and provide characteristic property profiles for both manual and automatic dosing systems.
Pigments used in building materials must comply with the relevant regulatory standards. Our inorganic pigments meet or exceed even the highest requirements of industrial standards such as DIN EN 12878 and ASTM C 979.

Many of our product solutions are unique in their attributes. Learn more about how our pigments bring added value to your specific application.

In addition, our experts can give advice on the handling of our pigments, from their dosing and transport to mixing technology.

View in the most northern gin and whisky distillery in the world. Cask storage is part of the production process: Whisky must be stored in oak casks for at least three years. 
The 1056 square metre black warehouse of the Finnish Kyrö Distillery is located in the middle of the forest and at first glance appears to be boarded up with old, charred wooden planks. The façade of the cask warehouse is inspired by the typical regional wooden barns.
