Chromic oxide

Used in the production of aerospace super-alloys and in the production of refractory bricks for glass and fiberglass kilns. Also, used as a pigment in paints, industrial coatings, ceramics, plastics and roofing tiles.


Refractory and technical grade

With a melting point of 2300°C, chromic oxide is commonly used in the production of refractory bricks to line metallurgical and glass furnaces and kilns.

Harder than other metal oxides, such as titanium or iron, chromic oxide is ideally suited to environments where temperature and process conditions are aggressive.

Accrox R

Chromic oxide Accrox R is used in the refractory industry to make bricks, mortars, ramming mixes, gunning mixes, etc. to increase the life of refractory materials. It is also used as a pigment for ceramic tile.

Accrox C

The major use of Chromic oxide Accrox C is in the refractory industry. Chromic oxide is added to bricks, mortars, ramming mixes, gunning mixes, etc. to increase the life of refractory materials.

Metallurgical grade

Manufactured using a unique process, our metallurgical grade chromic oxide is a high quality product which can be used to produce chrome metal. Chrome metal, in turn, can be combined with other metals to produce high performance super-alloys used in the aerospace industry.

Metallurgical 'A' grade

A fine dark green powder. When mixed with aluminium and potassium dichromate, using the alumino-thermic process, chromic oxide produces high purity chromium metal. This is a vital ingredient in the production of the high performance super-alloys used in the aerospace industry.

Pigment grade

Elementis Chromium produces the widest range of pigment grade chromic oxides on the market.

Compared to other green pigments, chromic oxide gives excellent light fastness, durability, stability and performance. It is also unaffected by acids, alkalis and solvents.

Key Applications:

  • chromic oxide is used in paints, coatings, plastics, enamels, concrete and other construction materials where color strength is a key factor
  • in the ceramic industry, it is mixed with metal oxides to produce pigments that vary in shade from black to yellow
  • our chrome hydrate product is used as a pigment in soaps, artist paints and cosmetics.
  • we have even developed a dark green version with high infrared reflectance for use in camouflage coatings
  • chromic oxide is also used in roofing tiles to improve UV stability
