Our products

Crude & Powder
Burnt Umber is a naturally occurring ore, which is calcined at our facilities in Cyprus. Visual tests are conducted on each lot to maximize consistency and quality. The resulting pigment produces a brown shade with natural undertones in wood stain applications. Umbers are preferred colorants in furniture stains and high-quality wood finishes because of their transparency and ability to enhance wood grain appearance. The pigment from Crude Burnt Umber is also used in medium-gloss coatings, artist paints, coatings processed on intensive dispersing equipment, liquid colorants, paper, plaster and stucco applications. In addition, it is suitable to colour products made with cement. It is stable under exposure to sunlight and UV radiation and is alkali, chemical and weather resistant. Crude Burnt Umber is packaged in 50 kg polythene bags or 900-1000 kg Jumbo Bags.
Powder and Micronized material is packaged in 25 kg multiwall paper bags and shrink-wrapped onto pallets of 40 bags (1000 kg). Burnt Powder Umber is also available in 1000 kg Dust-prof Q-Bags.

Uses: wood stain, paint, colorants, adhesives, ink, concrete, stucco and plaster.
