Chromium Oxide Production Cost Analysis 2020

Chromium oxide, also known as chromia, is an inorganic compound. Chromium oxide owns a corundum structure, with a hexagonal close-packed array of oxide anions, along with two-thirds of the octahedral holes filled by chromium. Similar to corundum, chromium oxide is a tough, brittle material (Mohs hardness 8 to 8.5). It has properties like antiferromagnetic up to 307 K, the Néel temperature. Moreover, it is not readily attacked by acids.

The Parisians, Pannetier and Binet, were the first to prepare the transparent hydrated form of Cr2O3 in the year 1838. It is usually extracted from the mineral chromite, (Fe, Mg)Cr2O4. Chromium oxide is a widely used pigment due to its considerable stability. It was originally known as viridian. Today, it is used in paints, inks, and glasses. It is also used as a compound when polishing (also called stropping) the edges of knives, razors, surfaces of optical devices, etc, along with many other oxides. It comes in powder or wax form, and for this reason, it is known as a green compound.
