Durable colored roofs

Bayferrox® and Colortherm® pigments display highest fastness and stability properties. Therefore, colored concrete roofing tiles keep their color no matter which weather conditions they are exposed to.

Colored concrete roof tiles bring an element of color to individual designs and roofing work. A wide variety of color shades from the Bayferrox® and Colortherm® product lines are available. 

The choice of pigment is of major importance for the quality of the end-product. Years of tests on colored concrete products exposed to different climatic conditions all over the world have shown that inorganic oxide pigments have particularly good fastness properties.

Pigments from the product ranges Bayferrox® and Colortherm® can be used to add color. They display high quality levels in terms of color strength and color consistency. Because of their chemical structure, these products are highly weather stable, lightfast and UV-stable and are very well-suited for the coloring of construction materials. At the same time the LANXESS production processes ensure low environmental impact. 

The color range of the entire Bayferrox® and Colortherm® product portfolio includes Yellows, Reds, Greens, Browns and Blacks. In between these colors a wide variety of additional shades are possible. The shades tend towards the opaque colors found in nature, and thus fit harmoniously with the environment. Pure colors like yellow can be made by using white cement. Brilliant, glossy shades, like those obtained in plastics and surface coatings, are very difficult to produce in building materials because of the composition and structure of the concrete.
