One of the most exciting recent innovations in the Iron Oxide Industry has been Hoover Color’s introduction of EnvironOxide®. These pigments are produced using a unique process; that uses neither conventional mined natural ores nor a chemical synthesis. Utilizing a proprietary process, we harvest iron oxides while converting coal field mine drainage into clean water. The process is sustainable in addition to its environmental remediation benefits.
BR-832 is part of the red/orange series of EnvironOxide®. As with all of the EnvironOxide®s, BR-832 has a level of transparency suitable for wood coatings. At higher loadings it can be used to produce a soft reddish color. Like all Iron Oxides, EnvironOxides® are lightfast and chemical resistant.
