Nubiola has expanded production capacity of Micronized Red Iron Oxides


We at Nubiola have recently expanded our manufacturing capacity of Micronized Red Iron Oxides (Nubifer Red 5000 series) by 20% in our Girardota (Colombia) production plant. The investment was approved last year but the expanded line is working at full capacity since mid 2010.

‘We have experienced an increase in the demand of our iron oxides, being the micronized red range one of the most highly affected’, states Fabiana Requeijo, Nubiola’s Global Market Manager for Coatings and Iron Oxides Product Manager. ‘These products are key for many of our coatings and plastic customers, and that is the reason why we wanted to strengthen our commitment with them by guaranteeing supply in the terms they require so as to support them to successfully run their businesses.

The Nubifer 5000 series are micronized Iron Oxides which provide higher performance vs conventional Iron Oxides mostly because of their higher dispersibility, narrower particle size distribution and lower sieve residue. Micronized Red Iron Oxides range from the most yellowish shade (Nubifer R-5501) to the most bluish one (Nubifer R-5580) through middle shades.

Our focus is the production of pigments for highly demanding applications, guaranteeing good and consistent quality and providing our best technical, sales and supply support. Our Nubiola product range includes Red, Yellow, Black and Brown Iron Oxides, Heat Resistant Yellow Iron Oxides and Zinc Ferrites.
