While it is possible to chemically synthesize a Brown Iron Oxide, almost all of the synthetic Brown Iron Oxides marketed today are blends of red, yellow and/or black Iron Oxides. Besides being a less expensive alternative, it also provides a very broad range of colors. All of the outstanding Iron Oxide performance characteristics, including lightfastness and chemical resistance, can also be found in these products.
Hoover 742BR balances the need of product quality and cost. This pigment disperses on a high-speed disperser to a lower level than Hoover’s Best grades, but can still be media-milled to the desired grind specification. By eliminating Hoover’s premium grinding step, Hoover can pass the cost savings on to our customers.
