March 16, 2011

New Micronix YMOV iron oxide grades for enhanced performance in coatings formulations.

Novant Chemicals, a manufacturer and supplier of specialty pigments to the coatings and plastics industries, has introduced Micronix YMOV grades of yellow micronized iron oxide pigments to enhance its current micronized range. These low oil absorption grades are designed to complement the existing Micronix range of yellow pigments, but with specific performance qualities for paints and coatings applications. The YMOV grades combine the ease of dispersion qualities of the traditional Micronix grades with lower oil absorption rates to meet the requirements of high pigment loading applications, the company said. The benefits of lower oil absorption pigments include reduced viscosity and lower consumption of additives such as dispersion vehicles and drying agents. The YMOV yellows are available in all existing Micronix yellow shades. For more information visit or email
