The products of the Inorganic Pigments business unit (IPG) – marketed under the well-known brand names Bayferrox and Colortherm – cater to the paint & coatings, construction plastics and paper industries.

The paint & coatings market is very important for Lanxess as it is one of the fastest growing applications for the company’s speciality products. The ongoing urbanization in India creates a growing demand for the coatings industry.

High-quality pigments from Lanxess’ inorganic pigments business unit offer not only outstanding light fastness, high tinting strength, colour consistency and weather stability but also an unmatched dispersibility.

IPG is introducing its new product range of red iron oxide pigments. The new grades, Bayferrox 510, Bayferrox TP 5278 and Bayferrox TP 5279, satisfy demand for more yellow-shade red pigments.

Colourants for a broad range of applications

Whereas Levanox is a family of aqueous, solvent-free inorganic pigment preparations, comprising selected high-grade inorganic pigments, which can be used in paints & coatings and detergents.
