The Pigment Field of Iron Oxide

Iron oxide, as a pigment, is widely used in high-end automotive, architectural, anti-corrosion, and powder coatings. It is a good environmentally friendly coating. The annual consumption of iron oxide pigments worldwide exceeds 1 million tons, second only to titanium dioxide, and ranks second in inorganic pigments. Using iron oxide as a pigment not only maintains the advantages of good heat resistance, weather resistance, and UV absorption of available inorganic pigments but also disperses well in oily carriers. The coatings or inks prepared with it have good transparency. Layers made from iron oxide with semiconductor properties can provide electrostatic shielding due to its high conductivity. Iron oxide is a commonly used colourant in glass production. Iron oxide-coloured glass can absorb both ultraviolet and infrared rays, making it widely used in manufacturing heat drinking glass, sunglass glass, industrial protective glasses glass, and military anti-infrared coatings. At the same time, it has the function of being inexpensive, absorbing hot wires and ultraviolet rays. In addition, foreign countries also extensively use iron oxide pigments as colourants and protectors for wood painting. Using transparent iron oxide pigments instead of traditional pigments can preserve the apparent wood grain of the wood. At the same time, its high light resistance keeps the colour of the furniture unchanged over time. The ultraviolet rays in sunlight can decompose wood lignin and damage the cellular structure, leading to the wood's ageing. However, due to their small and evenly distributed particles, nano iron oxide pigments do not scatter light and absorb ultraviolet radiation, which can play a protective role in wood.
