orange pigments

the orange pigments are synthetic oxides or organic and azo pigments stabilized on carbonate. Orange ocher is a composition of natural earths.

Pigments are particles of fine material which have the function of modifying the colour of paints, coatings, mortars, lime or concrete, in which they are diffused.
There are natural pigments and synthetic pigments. According to each pigment we will have a more or less strong colouring power. The colour of the binder will also have an influence on the final shade.
