80 Years of Iron Oxides – Lanxesspigments make our lives more colorful

Lanxess AG, 51369 Leverkusen, Germany

For eighty years, iron oxide pigments from Lanxess have adding color to our day-to-day lives. Bayferrox ® and Chrome Oxide pigments have been proving their worth for decades in the coloring of a wide variety of products such as concrete elements, roofing tiles, coatings, plastics, paper and specialty pigments for toners and other applications. This was reason enough for the Inorganic Pigments business unit to celebrate the anniversary in Krefeld-Uerdingen with numerous customers and guests from politics and industry. In the past 80 years, Lanxess has supplied 11 million tons of iron oxides to customers all over the world. If the 11 million tons were packed in the normal 25 kg bags and placed alongside one another, they would cover a distance of some 264,000 kilometers – circling the earth more than six and a half times.
