Micaceous Iron Oxide (MIO) Eisenglimmer is a natural Iron Oxide (Fe2O3) with a fish-scale and plate-like structure. MIO paints are well approved in heavy corrosion protection and are preferential substances in building protection wherever long life performance is needed.
The MIO Eisenglimmer AS/SG has an excellent lamellar structure. This lamellar structure creates that barrier effect which is responsible for the long-lasting corrosion protection. It avoids actively the penetration of humidity (salt water, tropical moisture) and air pollution. This scale-like structure is also the reason for the excellent adhesion to the substrate of anti-corrosion coatings as well as in intermediate layer in multilayers
Eisenglimmer has a steel grey, metallic shiny color. It acts as an UV filter and protects the binding resin.
Eisenglimmer is characterized by a high Fe2O3 content and has no quartz contamination. The deciding parameter for the immediate corrosion protection is the electrolyte content of pigments in the coating system. Eisenglimmer provides an extraordinarily low electrolyte content. The MIO Eisenglimmer offers a characteristic steelgrey colour with metal shine.
The product specifications comply with the valid micaceous iron oxide standards as per DIN EN ISO 10601 (Grade A with > 65 % Thin-flake content) and TL/TP-KOR-Stahlbauten of BASt.
