Premium quality and sustainability.

Outstanding product quality, long-established technical expertise and environmentally friendly production processes – these are the defining features of Bayferrox® and Colortherm® pigments from LANXESS.

LANXESS Inorganic Pigments is the world’s largest producer of iron oxide pigments and has production sites on five continents that meet the highest technical and ecological standards. All Bayferrox® and Colortherm® pigments offer outstanding quality in all chemical and physical properties, but particularly in tinting strength and color consistency. Their chemical composition ensures that the products are completely weather-stable and lightfast. Now well-known and valued all over the world, they first appeared in Germany, where they have been manufactured since 1926. Today high-quality inorganic color pigments from LANXESS are used by customers worldwide in a range of applications, on roofs, walls and roads, in artificial grass at sporting venues, or in laminate floors and plastic and cosmetic products.

Moreover, LANXESS pigments are increasingly being used in applications that harness their technical properties rather than their coloring properties. For example, they are used to clean drinking water, manufacture catalysts and remove sulfur from biogas. Since the Bayoxide® product range for technical applications can be put to such a wide variety of uses, products are often custom-developed for individual customers, or special solutions are worked out in close collaborations.

Crucial to the business philosophy of LANXESS Inorganic Pigments is its commitment to sustainability and responsibility in all its dealings with the environment, customers and society. Production processes are resource-friendly and, where emissions cannot be avoided completely, the waste products are cleaned to minimize their environmental impact before being released into the air or water. LANXESS is setting global industrial standards in this area.

However, sustainability means more than just environmental protection. It also means being a long-term and reliable partner to customers. That is why LANXESS Inorganic Pigments continuously invests to expand capacities and application areas. Indeed, that is the only way that the rising demand for the quality products Bayferrox®, Colortherm® and Bayoxide® can be met in the long term.

The Inorganic Pigments business unit is part of LANXESS Performance Chemicals segment.
