Chrome Oxide Green Introduction

C.I. Pigment: Pigment Green 17 , C.I. 77288
Applications: Coatings, Plastics & Construction
Description: Chrome Oxide Green is an inorganic pigment whose olive-green colour has been classified as Pigment Green 17/C.I. 77288 (Chrome Oxide Green) by the Colour Index System. Its basic chemical composition is Cr2O3.
Chrome Oxide Greens are used in a wide variety of applications because of its excellent opacity, outdoor durability and heat fastness. Its hardness is also highly valued for surface finishing, where Chrome Oxide Greens are used as abrasive components. They are also used as a base oxide to produce several other metal oxide based pigments.

Chrome Oxide Green G-5400 ST is a dark shade, very stable, green pigment that is unaffected by acids, alkalis and solvents. Chrome Oxide Green G-5400 ST is heat stable and offer excellent value vs. performance, light fastness and weatherability.

Micronized Grades

Product Name: SMM-4
C.I. Pigment: Pigment Green 17 , C.I. 77288
Applications: Plastics, Coatings
Description: Chrome Oxide Greens have been used in Plastics for years to provide a green olive hue with excellent performance in terms of:
  • Compatibility with all kinds of polymers
  • Ease-of-dispersion
  • Maintenance of the polymer’s dimensional stability
  • Excellent heat fastness (800ºC, 5 min)
  • Excellent light fastness
  • Excellent weather fastness
  • Excellent resistance to chemicals
  • Insolubility, avoiding migration tendencies
  • High opacity
The SMM grades are micronized products that provide a good balance between performance and price. They are easy-to-disperse, have a narrow particle size distribution and have a low sieve residue.
With regards to colour, the series ranges from the most yellowish shade (SMM-7) to the most bluish shade (SMM-4).

Nubicrom 02 is a high-dispersion micronized Chrome Oxide Green manufactured with a special process that minimizes the presence of agglomerates. Nubicrom 02 provides higher performance vs conventional Chrome Oxide Greens mostly because of its higher dispersibility, narrower particle size distribution and lower sieve residue. Therefore, customers will be able to load more pigment in their Masterbatches to achieve a better performance of products in end use, especially in critical applications like thin films.
