Iron Manganese Black Oxide (PBk33)
Pigment Black 33 (C.I.77537) is a black Manganese Ferrite with chemical formula MnFe2O4 and a hematite structure. It provides brownish to bluish black shade.
We are a leading global manufacturer of Iron Manganese Black Oxide (PBk33), a black pigment that is opaque to visible light with moderate NIR reflectance ("cool" pigment).
Ferro PBk33 provides ease of dispersion with excellent dimensional stability resulting in no warping or shrinkage. It can be used when neither Carbon Black nor Black Iron Oxide can be used for technical reasons, especially as a replacement for accurately sorting black black plastics, which are typically colored with carbon black colorants that do not reflect well in NIR sorting devices.
Optimal Infrared Sorting Capabilities
Nubifer NB-803K FCP ron Manganese Black Oxide pigment (PBk33) that has been formulated reflect light from the emitter, allowing the sensor to properly identify and sort various plastics during the recycling process.
Formulated to Meet Rigorous Food Contact Regulations
Nubifer NB-803K FCP is part of our complete FCP product range that is AP89(1) certified for each lot (even at lower limits than the AP89(1) standard), and complies with the requirements established by EU 10/2011 regarding plastic packaging in contact with food and has acquired FDA approval (FDA 21 CFR 178.3297) to be used up to 5% in the final plastic material.
Ferro FCP black pigments are not only designed specifically to meet the requirements of individual polymer sorting via NIR reflection technologies, they also provide the color, processing, and surface finish properties needed across the diverse polymers required for food contact applications.

VALUE ADDED SERVICES
Advanced Color Matching
Ferro technicians combine their talents with today's most advanced computer color analysis equipment to offer our customers precise color-matching services. Our spectrophotometry process minimizes metamerism, speeds up color matching, ensures consistent quality and helps identify the pigment combination that produces any given color for the lowest possible cost and right performance characteristics, including outdoor durability and NIR reflectance.
Ferro can match your color chip/drawdown or we can refer to complete files of OSHA, Munsel, RAL, Federal Standard 595 Series or Pantone® matching systems to achieve your reference number. All of our colors are matched to Ferro standards or your reference sample, ensuring precise color reproduction from order to order.
Providing Formulation Guides/Assistance with Startup Formula Creation
We assist customers in their product development efforts to ensure regulatory compliance (e.g., usage in food, cosmetics) and desired performance including anticorrosion, outdoor durability and NIR reflectance.
Our laboratory facility teams support customers’ production and development activities, including accelerated corrosion testing, weatherability testing, heat build-up and total solar reflectance testing and migration testing.
We work closely with our customers to co-innovate and develop customized high-performing and economical coloring solutions based on application requirements and operational processing needs, including custom formulations for paints, coatings, cement, concrete, inks, ceramics, glass, leather, metal and plastics.
Ferro provides custom manufacturing services to add value to specific projects, particularly in cases which our production facilities and know-how allow our customers to reach cost-efficiency targets or attain higher performing final products.
For customers who need additional manufacturing capabilities, we provide a full range of manufacturing capacities, from pilot runs to full-scale production.
