1. Characteristics:
Iron oxide yellow is an inorganic substance with the chemical formula Fe2O3, which is a  orange dpowder. The relative density is 2.44~3.60. Melting point 350 ~ 400 ℃. Insoluble in water, alcohol, soluble in acid. The powder is fine and it is a crystalline iron oxide hydrate. Due to the different production methods and operating conditions, the degree of hydration is different, and the crystal structure and physical properties are very different. Good tinting strength, hiding power, light resistance, acid resistance, alkali resistance and heat resistance.
