Iron Oxide

Iron Oxides are durable products that are widely used in pigments, coatings or paints to produce a range of colors. 

In the friction materials industry the most common application is as non-functional pigments to change the color of underlayers or the friction material itself. 

Magnetite (Fe3O4) is a key component in NAO/organic formulations, acting as mild abrasive and supporting corona-style powder coating. 

Alroko supplies specific Iron Oxide grades that are very popular in both NAO/organic formulations and low-steel formulations. Natural and synthetic grades are available in many different particle size distributions.
