Micaceous iron oxide

Micaceous iron oxide (Fe2O3) is a pure, natural product in the oxide class of minerals. Its hardness according to Mohs is 6.0 to 6.5, with a density of 4.8g/cm³.

In addition to standard types for heavy-duty corrosion protection, newly developed product types especially well suited for thin-film corrosion protection and also as a zinc dust replacement are available. For the ceramics and plastics industry, we supply micaceous iron oxide as a metallic effect pigment in very coarse, narrow grain size ranges.


  • High iron content causes a metallic appearance
  • High protective effect
  • Improves mechanical properties
  • Increases thermal conductivity
