Yellow Ochre iron oxides (Fe2O3) are around 85% Fe2O3 and about 12% LOI with some impurities (e.g. SiO2, CaO). In ceramics, yellow irons are used where its raw colour or other raw properties are important to the manufacturing process or colour of the unfired product. It can produce yellowish honey colours (3%) but generally gives shades of brown (up to 8%) especially in lead glazes. It has excellent hiding power, absorbs ultraviolet light, is compatible with a broad range of vehicles, disperses well in aqueous and solvent systems, does not contain heavy metals
