Lead Oxide (Red Lead)

Red Lead

Red Lead is an inorganic compound Pb3O4. Usually bright red or orange, it is used as a pigment in the manufacture of a number of products – Lead glass, Batteries, Paints etc. The paints made with red lead are used to protect iron and steel from rusting. It is also used as a curing agent in some polychloroprene rubber compounds. It is used in place of magnesium oxide to provide better water resistance properties. Red Lead is produced by the oxidation of metallic lead. With 99.98% Lead produced from our refining process, we are able to produce high purity Lead from our plant.
