Pigments for Specialties
For various special applications beyond our core applications, LANXESS provides customized pigment solutions. The Bayoxide® range includes iron and chromium oxides whose technical properties are of primary importance in the end application, rather than their color. Due to their specific chemical or morphological characteristics, these pigments are used for example because of their catalytic or magnetic properties. In addition, our specialty pigments portfolio comprises selected Bayferrox® iron oxide and Colortherm® chromium oxide pigments being used for coloration in specific site applications. Our value approach combines dedicated product solutions with outstanding technical advice – see for yourself.
Premium Inorganic Pigments
LANXESS has been an established and well-trusted supplier of high-quality iron- and chromium oxides for more than 90 years. The comprehensive product portfolio includes red, yellow, black and brown iron oxide pigments – many of them have been developed to fulfill very specific requirements in special applications and to generate added value due to their technical and/or coloristic properties.
Especially when used in technical applications, the quality of the pigments is of decisive importance. Our quality control system along the production process lays the foundations for the highest product consistency, which is regularly tested according to recognized standards in our own laboratories.
Exclusively for technical applications, LANXESS offers the Bayoxide® E product range, based on iron oxides, as well as Bayoxide® C based chromium oxides. With these products, color plays no role, rather their chemical-physical properties such as purity, hardness, reactivity or magnetism is of primary importance.
The coloring of paper or of seeds, on the other hand, places special quality requirements on the pigment used. Our Bayferrox® iron oxides and Colortherm® chromium oxides have proven themselves in practice and enable a reliable and high-quality coloration of a wide range of specific materials.
Best-in-class Technical Service
As the technology leader in the field of synthetic iron- and chromium oxides, LANXESS has extensive experience and know-how in their use within very specific technical and/or coloristic applications. Our technical service team is able to develop tailor-made oxides satisfying the specific needs of individual customers, and new areas of application are developed in close collaboration between partner companies and our in-house R&D division. Thus, we provide pigment solutions helping our partners to design optimum end products for their markets.
The LANXESS portfolio includes various services, such as:
- Testing of physical and chemical oxide properties, e.g. particle size distribution, electron microscopy or element analysis
- Characterization and analysis of toners, e.g. particle shape, coercivity, remanence and saturation
- Support for planning and operating of field tests at customer sites
