Synthetic red iron oxide are the most common oxide colour and have the highest amount of iron. Due to their pure hue, consistent properties, and tinting strength, they have become increasingly important in various fields of applications. They are available commercially as a soft and very fine dry powder made by grinding ore material or heat processing ferrous/ferric sulphate or ferric hydroxide.

Synthetic Red Iron Oxides from Tata Pigments are high-quality inorganic colour pigments with excellent colour stability, light fastness, weather stability and chemical resistance.
