Mio pigment

Mio pigment

Hi all,

Iam a newbie, so apologies if this query seems trivial

client specification reads like this

"MIO pigmented paint shall contain a min. of 50% natural laminar micaceous iron oxide by weight in the dry film"

What does natural laminar means? and is there any way from Prouct/safety data sheet to find out the % of natural laminar by weight

Thanks in advance

RE: Mio pigment

It's probably lammelar - having a plate-like structure. I think it is redundant with micaceous as the mineral mica has a plate-like structure. It can be easily split or cleaved along planes of weakness in the crystal.

The function in the paint is to function like scales on a fish - overlap and lay flat to maximize the resistance to wear and loss of the binder by protecting the binder.

Micaceous iron oxide (iron oxide, Fe2O3) is a naturally occurring iron oxide with lamellar shape similar to mica (hence the name). Micaceous iron oxide is characterised by:
Black colour
Lamellar structure
High inertness in various media (the iron in the mineral has already been oxidised).
