Pigments for paper coloration

Manufactured using a certified process these pigments have a “tested paper quality”.

LANXESS offers a broad product portfolio of iron oxides for the production of colored paper.

The main applications for Bayferrox® pigments in this industry are the bulk coloration of impregnated and pressed laminate paper.

Another application is the coloration of paper for cigarette tips.  For this application LANXESS provides specially tested product types, the so called Z-Grades. Since in this case the paper is directly in contact with human skin, certain legal requirements have to be fulfilled and a high level of skin tolerance has to be ensured.

Due to the high quality requirements of the paper industry, LANXESS provides a range of Bayferrox® grades which have been tailored to the needs of the industry. All pigments are tested in laminate paper and packed in water repulpable bags. The closed bags can be directly added to the pulper. Dust during the production process can be avoided and occupational hygiene is guaranteed. Bulk bags are also available.

Pallets are marked with the quality label "Tested Paper quality". All deliveries are accompanied by a Certificate of Analysis which lists the data of the particular lot.

The Global Competence Center Specialties operates a modern paper laboratory which enables LANXESS to assist our customers to solve application and technological issues.
