  • Decorative Paints
  • Emulsion Paints
  • Floorings
  • Industrial Coating
  • Paints & Coatings
  • Plastic Coating

As a result of the manufacturing process (Laux-process), which includes a high temperature calcining step, Bayferrox® 180 NM has a higher intrinsic hardness than other precipitated pigments as well as outstanding heat stability. It is very resistant to color change during high energy dispersion processes.
