Chromium(III) oxide also known as Chromic Oxide is the inorganic compound of the formula Cr2O3. It is one of the principal oxides of chromium and is used as a green pigment. Because of its considerable stability, chromic oxide is a commonly used pigment and was originally called viridian. It is used in paints, inks, and glasses. Chromic Oxide is also an important ceramic glaze.
When used as glaze, Chrome produces a wide range of greens, from a transparent glossy lime green to the more iconic, opaque, satin kelly green. The strong green color can often be modified by very small amounts of other oxides, like cobalt oxide, copper oxide, iron oxide, manganese dioxide, rutile, tin oxide, etc. In addition to green, chrome oxide also produces gray, brown, red, pink, and orange colors. It is also used in black glazes and stains to give a strong, true black color.
Average particle size: 8 Micron.
