The chemical formula of Cr2O3, also called Viridian, can be used in many industries.
Cr + 3 O-2 Cr2O3
Production and Reactions
Chromium (III) is reacted with aluminum or silicon to produce chromium metal.
Cr2O3 + 2Al ---> 2Cr + Al2O3
2Cr2O3 + 3Si ---> 4Cr + 3SiO2
With the addition of 1% at low temperatures, the shades of yellow lead are obtained in the acidic secrets. The increasing ratios of SiO2 cause a color change from brown to green on a chrome red glaze.
In this sector, it is used as an additive in printing ink for paper money.
In the paint industry, this chemical is used as a paint colorant. It is also used in painting industry on leather and building materials in ceramic industry.
This material, which is used in many sectors, is used as an aid in metal chromium melting.
