Red Mulch is most prominant and mainly adjusted with iron oxides. To color the mulch based wood chips, concentrated water based pastes are used, which usually contain the pigment, water and various additives. The new red iron oxide pigments of the Bayferrox® 500 series provide long-term stability regarding their viscosity and settling behavior. Due to their particularly good wetting properties, slurries with a high pigment content can be achieved. As a result, the wood chips retain their color for a very long time. What’s more, the Bayferrox®grades show the potential to optimize slurry formulations leading to a reduced additive demand, making them more cost-effective.
