Red oxide powder is most widely occurring in nature. It is basic mineral for steel plant. Red oxide has tremendous application in building, construction, paint and many other industries. In India, good quality with high percentage of iron oxide is available in several regions. For paint, Ceramic and building materials shade and tone of Red oxide is important. The best shade is of course PG Red Oxide from Iran.
Red oxide is known for its corrosion protection, inertness to alkali and chemicals. Durability of paint made with Red Oxide is very well known.
