Chromic oxide

Description

A dull, olive-green color pigment that occurs naturally as the mineral eskolaite. A process for synthetically producing anhydrous, opaque chrome oxide green was developed in 1809 by Vauquelin. The colorant was listed as an artists pigment in the 1840 Winsor and Newton catalog (Newman 1997). It is opaque, lightfast, and durable with excellent resistance to chemicals and heat. Chromic oxide has limited use in paints because of its dull color. However, it absorbs infrared radiation well and this has led to its use in deck paints and camouflage coatings for military purposed. Chromium oxide is also used as an abrasive, as a glaze color, and for tanning leather.
