Ferrophos Pigment 

Glenn Springs Holdings, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Occidental Petroleum Corporation, produces Ferrophos®, a refractory ferro-alloy developed for use in high-performance specialty coatings. Its primary use is in zinc-rich coatings where it works with zinc dust to provide good corrosion resistance and weldability. Recent developments in formulation technology make Ferrophos pigment attractive for use in weldable coil coatings and conductive paints for electromagnetic interference shielding (EMI).

Product Overview

Ferrophos Pigment is used in preparing unique, cost-effective and high-performance weldable, conductive or corrosion resistant coatings. A high melting point, high specific gravity and low oil absorption makes this pigment the logical choice for many coating applications.

  • Automotive and appliance spot welding applications
  • Can be used as a single pigment for anti-static and electrostatic coatings
  • Powder metallurgy additive
  • Proprietary specialty applications developed by customers


  • Cost savings
    • Partial replacement for zinc dust in zinc-rich coatings
    • Partial replacement for nickel or copper pigments in EMI RFI shielding coatings
  • Electrically and thermally conductive. Chemically inert to most coating environments.
  • Environmentally friendly
    • Inert in typical applications
    • Non-hazardous
    • Long storage life in original container
  • Angular particles provide reinforcement, hardness and abrasion resistance of coating films
  • Lowers sintering temperatures and facilitates compression and may improve gaining magnetic properties in powder metallurgy
