Natural Yellow Iron Oxide

Yellow iron oxide (yellow ochre) is a naturally occurring pigment of consistent quality and shade (reddish yellow) with high light resistance and covering power.


Yellow ochre is a color in the same group as mustard and very light brown. It has numerous applications in the construction industry (for coloring coatings, lime paints, concrete, and so on). This mother color is also required for the creation of warm colors such as cream. Many colors (bone, olive, salmon, cream, beige, coffee, brick, and chocolate, for example) are actually mixtures of yellow ochre and other pigments.


Yellow ochre, which is used as a mother color, is available in both oil and plastic forms on the market. Yellow ochre plastic paints used as mother paints tend to lighten when completely dry, whereas yellow ochre oil and acrylic paints tend to darken slightly when completely dry.

Yellow ochre is the most cost-effective high-quality color pigment in the dye industry. It can be used to color cement, brick, mosaic, colored concrete pieces, tires, and ink.


Natural yellow iron oxide can be manufactured in different mesh sizes as per customers’ request.


One of the biggest users of Iron Oxide Pigments is building materials industry. Uses include coloring the concrete products and mortar because of their acceptable dispensability and good strength.


Our iron oxides are suitable for coloring cement, concrete and concrete products, roofing tile asphalt and send lime bricks and offers considerable cost saving up to 50% in comparison with other synthetic products.


Paints industry can be considered as another biggest user of Iron Oxide Pigments. Most of the paint applications require applying micronized and good grades of pigments to acquire the best coloring effects.


Efficient test on paints, marine coating in which our iron oxides are used, shows a perfect performance than other similar products. Iron oxide is also ideal to be used in varnishes and stains.

Paint and Coating

Iron Oxides are widely used in preparation of leather colorants. Our iron oxide is free from heavy metals and hence preferred by the industry.


During the past years, iron oxide has been used for manufacturing of leather products it provides constant colorant on leather without having a negative effect on lifetime of leather like some other similar products.

Leather Colorants

Various shades of Iron Oxides are added to mortars, concrete blocks, surface areas and other building components to make the best of building exteriors and provide endless possibilities for designers and architectures.


Such colored finishes are also applied to restore heritage building by matching colors of the blocks and plasters with that of the existing structures.

Architectural Products

Iron Oxide can be used in production of color master batches for the plastic industry since it’s considered as a heat stable material.  Masterbatch is a concentrated mixture of pigments additives encapsulated during a heat processing to a carrier resin which is thereafter cooled and cut into granular shapes.


Masterbatch provides the processor to color raw polymer economically during the plastics manufacturing process.


Iron oxides match other applications such as:


  • Adhesives
  • Vinyl Flooring
  • Plastics and Rubbers
  • Cement Flooring
  • Drugs and medicine
  • PVC products
  • Rubber products 
  • Glazes
  • Textile industry
  • Inks
  • Ceramic colors
  • Glass and metal Polishing
