LANXESS is offering Bayferrox iron oxide pigments, which are used for reconstruction and renovation of historic monuments and buildings.
The re-erection of the “Quatre Columnes” structure is one such example of the application of LANXESS’ color pigment. The structure with four ionic concrete columns is located in Barcelona, Spain. The columns were coated with a light brown pigment, which was produced by LANXESS’ subsidiary, Europigments, using Bayferrox 610 powder. The formulation provides an opaque, warm and natural shade to the columns.
A total of 700 kg of brown pigment was used to color the four new columns constructed with hollow pre-cast concrete structures. The key benefit of the Bayferrox iron oxide pigment is its tight tolerance in terms of tinting strength and shade, and this feature simplifies color reproduction.
The pigment is resistant to UV, light and weather. Hence, products colored with this pigment maintain their shade for a long period of time. The light brown pigments from LANXESS add a new life to historic architecture.
