Which applications for Micaceous Iron Oxide?

IRONOR® is mostly used in anticorrosive paints for metallic surfaces.

It can also be used in other domains requesting hematites. For instance, when manufacturing welding electrodes.

IRONOR® was used for over 120 years in anticorrosive coatings composition in order to enhance painting life span. This special painting is mostly used in hostile areas, industrial and navy paintings.

The best example is the Eiffel Tower, which is covered with an anticorrosive painting composed of Micaceous Iron Oxide. It allows the painting to last longer. IRONOR® is used in anticorrosive coatings on metallic surfaces: electricity pylons, oil platforms, cisterns, pipelines…

What are Micaceous Iron Oxide properties?

Thanks to its layered structure, IRONOR® enhance the anticorrosive performances of coatings:

  • It builds up a barrier against corrosion: the thin flakes move alongside the substrate to form a protection against external assaults, to avoid moisture and sea salt. It blocks UV rays.
  • The form factor is high because its layered structure is important.
  • Its high lamellarity acts as a barrier against seepage in paintings.
  • IRONOR® and iron share the same thermal expansion ratio, as a result it reduces bending and cracking of the film.
