CathayCoat™ iron oxide pigments are extremely versatile and a highly effective method of adding vibrant color to a wide range of products including pigment paste, industrial coating, powder coating, wood lacquer, automotive and marine paint, architectural paints and plastics. These pigments are lightfast, color consistent, UV stable, weather resistant, alkali and mild acid resistant, insoluble in water, synthetic and have excellent dispersibility.

We offer CathayCoat pigments in four sub-categories:

Premium A-Grade & AA-Grade
CathayCoat Micronized A-grade and AA-grade iron oxides are high-quality pigments tailor-made for high end coatings that have premium requirements. With their excellent dispersing properties, they can be used directly for high-speed dispersing without further milling. Therefore it saves time, energy and labor during the production of paints, dispersions and other final products.

Standard S-Grade
CathayCoat S-grade iron oxides are a range of high-quality pigments with attractive prices for paints, plastics, paper and dispersions. Extra milling or dispersant additives can be added to customize and improve the final product.

Economical C-Grade
CathayCoat C-grade iron oxide is an economical pigment range for coating applications. With our custom specification manufacturing and our advanced, environmentally safe production, this range of iron oxide products provides another choice for excellent cost-performance ratio.

Primer Grades
Primer-grade iron oxides are a range of red pigments that provide high hiding power, easy dispersion and high tinting strength for primer paint applications. Cathay Industries provides a full range of colors to the construction industry for asphalt, cement, tiles and other materials.

CathayCoat Black BA range

The CathayCoat™ Black BA range is a range of high performance, coatings grade black iron oxides. Utilizing premium raw materials processed to exacting specifications, these pigments exhibit easy-dispersing properties and high colour strength.

Like all black iron oxides, this range exhibits excellent lightfastness and chemical resistance. In normal applications it is considered a permanent pigment. While weaker than typical carbon black pigments, black iron oxides are more compatible with water base systems. Black iron oxides also have the unique property of being magnetic, since they are based on the mineral Magnetite, so this propoerty may also be utilised in more specialised identification/security applications.
