Micaceous Iron Oxide Designations

  • Chemical Name : Micaceous iron oxide
  • Chemical Formula : Crystalline Fe203

Micaceous Iron Oxide Description

  • A naturally occurring lamellar form of ferrous oxide for use in manufacturing paint coatings.
  • When viewed under an optical microscope by transmitted light, magnification X 200, the thin flake micaceous iron oxide particles appear as sharply defined red translucent platelets.
  • Without doubt, it is the most important barrier pigment used in coatings to protect structural  steelwork from corrosion. It has a 100 year record of successful use on many types of steel structures throughout the world.
  • It forms overlapping plates like mail armor. It reflects ultaviolet light, allows water vapor to escape from the substrate, and is chemically resistant.

Micaceous Iron Oxide Nominal Chemical Properties Available : Iron content (expressed as Fe203 according. to ISO 1248)= > 85%

Micaceous Iron Oxide Nominal Physical Properties Available

  • Lamellar content : 70%
  • Standard granulation : 63 microns and finer

Micaceous Iron Oxide Typical Applications :
a) Bridge structural protective coatings, oil rig structural protective coatings, and protective coatings for all types of electrical and industrial equipment where durability and reliability are important.
b) It has been successfully used in various paint primers with single or multiple top coats in alkyd, epoxy, vinyl, acrylic, polyurethane, and chlorinated rubber.
c) It has been used in corrosion and weather resistant paint throughout Europe for more than 100 years. The Eiffel Tower is one outstanding example.
d) The horizontal layering of the lamellar (micaceous) particles, overlapping like scales on a fish, gives strength to the paint and acts as an inert barrier to the vertical penetration of corrosive elements and ultraviolet light.
