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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A light yellowish-green powder. Also available as a higher purity material that meets Food and Drug Administration approval and CTFA specifications for cosmetic use.
An intermediate green pigment specifically formulated to expand the range of pigment shades available. This grade is jet milled (micronized) in order to improve pigment characteristics.
A bluish-green powder that is the darkest shade chromic oxide pigment available with strong tint strength. Also available as a high purity version that meets Food and Drug Administration approval and CTFA specifications for cosmetics.
A dark green pigment with high infrared reflectance specifically formulated for use in camouflage coatings. It is easily dispersed in and compatible with the resin systems specified for camouflage coatings.
A light green powder specifically developed as a cost-effective, high value product for applications that do not require the level of specifications typically demanded of high performance pigments. GA-4090 is more yellow than GA-6090.
A darker green powder than GA-4090 specifically developed as a cost-effective, high value product for applications that do not require the level of specifications typically demanded of high performance pigments.
GH-9869 Chrome hydrate
A blue green color hydrated version of chromic oxide which meets Food and Drug Administration approval.
A light yellowish-green shade.
