Chromium Compound Containing (cr) Patents (Class 106/453)
  • Patent number: 10259955
    Abstract: Pigments and inks for the decoration of ceramic objects, which have, in their formulation, iron and phosphorus oxides, combined with lithium oxide, the presence of this latter element being that which gives the pigments the capacity of being milled (in the form of a suspension in a solvent base) to the point of being able to obtain inks that are characterized by having very narrow PSD and an upper bound of less than 1 ?m. Thanks to this PSD, inks prepared using these pigments can be applied in standard printing heads to glazed ceramic objects, enabling a metallic gloss and appearance to be obtained after said ceramic objects undergo a firing process. The ink obtain has a low viscosity, allowing an increase in the concentration of the pigment and thus an increase in its yield, optimizing gloss and the metallic appearance of the finished ceramic objects.

  • Publication number: 20140109797
    Abstract: A colored ceramic powder is produced from a mixture of coloring solutions consisting of metallic salts that are introduced to a ceramic slurry and subsequently dried. The coloring solution may comprise for example of chosen metallic salts, a solvent, an organic solvent such as derivatives of propylene oxides, an acid and a possible binder. Once all the constituents are thoroughly mixed to a homogeneous state, the slip is dried to a powder form, which spray drying equipment can be used. The dried powder can then be subjected to an isostatic or biaxial press manufacturing process to create a green state ceramic body. Once pressed, the ceramic body can be subjected to a sintering process. After final sinter, the resulting ceramic body possesses an innate color that is homogenous throughout its composition. The method is especially useful for coloring zirconia dental restorations.

  • Patent number: 7789958
    Abstract: Corrosion-inhibiting pigments based on manganese are described that contain a trivalent or tetravalent manganese/valence stabilizer complex. An inorganic or organic material is used to stabilize the trivalent or tetravalent manganese ion to form a compound that is sparingly soluble, exhibits low solubility, or is insoluble in water, depending upon the intended usage. Specific stabilizers are chosen to control the release rate of trivalent or tetravalent manganese during exposure to water and to tailor the compatibility of the powder when used as a pigment in a chosen binder system. Stabilizers may also modify the processing and handling characteristics of the formed powders. Manganese/valence stabilizer combinations are chosen based on the well-founded principles of manganese coordination chemistry. Many manganese-valence stabilizer combinations are presented that can equal the performance of conventional hexavalent chromium or tetravalent lead systems.

  • Publication number: 20100126562
    Abstract: The present invention provides mixed metal oxide based special effect pigments that can be incorporated into optically thin binder systems to produce a “metal flake” appearance that is superior to the “metal flake” appearance presently achievable using conventional special effect pigments. Special effect pigments according to the invention comprise at least 10 wt % of mixed metal oxides that exhibit the McConnellite (Cu1+Cr3+O2) crystal structure. Other metallic elements can be incorporated into the crystal lattice structure to alter the appearance effect of the pigments.

  • Publication number: 20100064941
    Abstract: A pearlescent pigment includes a ceramic flake coated with a metal oxide. The metal oxide is, preferably, an oxide of titanium, iron, tin, chromium1, zirconium or a combination thereof, and the refractive index of the metal oxide coating is preferably at least 0.5 higher than that of the ceramic flake. The pearlescent pigment may be included in a coating applied to a metallic or plastic surface to give the surface a lustrous or pearlescent optical effect.

  • Patent number: 7641721
    Abstract: Disclosed is an aqueous solution of a chromium salt, in which the oxalic acid content is 8% by weight or less relative to chromium. In the aqueous solution of the chromium salt, the total organic carbon content is 4% by weight or less relative to chromium. The chromium salt is preferably a chromium chloride, a chromium phosphate, or a chromium nitrate. The chromium chloride preferably contains a basic chromium chloride represented by the composition formula Cr(OH)xCly (wherein 0<x?2, 1?y<3, and x+y=3). The chromium phosphate is preferably one represented by the composition formula Cr(H3-3/nPO4)n (wherein n is a number satisfying 2?n?3). The chromium nitrate is preferably a basic chromium nitrate represented by the composition formula Cr(OH)x(NO3)y (wherein 0<x?2, 1?y<3, and x+y=3).

  • Publication number: 20090255442
    Abstract: A pearlescent pigment and a process for enhancing the magnetic properties of a pearlescent pigment. The pearlescent pigment has a layer with regions of ?-Fe2O3 and regions of ?-Fe2O3. The magnetic properties of a pearlescent pigment may be enhanced by the steps of: providing a platelet pigment with a layer of Fe2O3, with a magnetic susceptibility less than 0.1×10?5 m3/kg; reducing some or all of the Fe2O3 to Fe3O4; and oxidizing some or all of the Fe3O4 to ?-Fe2O3. The color difference (?E*) between the provided pigment and the resultant pigment is not more than about 5.

  • Publication number: 20090185992
    Abstract: A pearlescent pigment, wherein the pigment is an inorganic material and the color of a homogeneous coating of the pigment, measured over a black background has a CIELAB hue angle, hab, from about 40 to about 320 degrees, wherein L* is from about 35 to about 80, and the chroma value is less than 5. A substrate is coated with iron oxide by oxidizing an iron salt to form a pigment. The pigment may be made by a process of coating iron oxide on a substrate by oxidizing an iron salt. During the coating of the iron oxide, the pH of the mixture is increased. The coating formed has a Fe(III)/Fe(II) ratio of greater than 2. The pigments may be used in a variety of applications including coating, ink, plastic, and cosmetic compositions.
