Iron oxide is a chemical compound consisting of oxygen and iron. Iron is a metallic element which is about 5% of the crust. If yellow iron oxide (use in Concrete Tiles Color / Tiles Color / Paint ) or rust iron oxide (use in Concrete Tiles Color / Tiles Color / Paint ), orange iron oxide (use in Concrete Tiles Color / Tiles Color / Paint )and red iron oxide (use in Concrete Tiles Color / Tiles Color / Paint ) are perfect. A large amount of iron oxide appears on Mars, who as the “red planet” known. Mars appears red because the crust is mainly composed of iron oxide.
Red Iron oxide
This compound is known as hematite. It is believed that the deposits of iron oxide by the precipitation of iron from the seawater in the Proterozoic, some years were created 1600000000. These deposits are in places all over the world, the highest concentrations in the United States, India, Australia, China, Brazil and Russia.
There are three elements that are naturally magnetic: cobalt, nickel and iron. Among these three iron is magnetic, which explains why the iron oxide is widely used in the manufacture of magnets, electronic parts, audio and video, and ATM cards are used.
Yellow Iron oxide
In the world of technology is used to create iron oxide pigments such as burnt sienna and umber. This method of creating color pigments of color have been used since prehistoric times. Lascaux cave paintings are one example, how long was this compound used in the creation of art.
The cosmetics industry iron oxide pigments used to create different makeup. Since it is nontoxic, waterproof, and it will not run or bleed, it is an ideal additive for cosmetics such as mascara, eye shadow and foundation. There are two types of compounds used in the cosmetics industry: iron oxide II, a black pigment, iron oxide and III, which is red, has.
Black Iron oxide
The different pigments in the compound are for coloring matters such as paint, concrete (concrete Brick,concrete Paver Blocks/Tiles) leather, shoe polish, tile, ( Paver Blocks, Brick and rubber. Brown pigments vary in color from light brown to coffee brown color. red pigmentation color range from a dark orange to deep red.
Iron oxide is also given to different nutrients, foods and medicines. It can in certain types of health products such as talcum powder, face cream and body cream to be found. Some products contain iron oxide sunscreen blocks UV radiation damage to human skin.
