IRANIAN MICACEOUS IRON OXIDE (MIO)
|Run of mine ore contains a natural iron oxide (Fe2O3) which distinguishes it from other iron ores with its metallic gray luster and lamellar structure.
Micaceous Iron Oxide (MIO) is rather a rare mineral and significant resources are known in the world. There are major differences in iron content, mineralogy and lamellarity between these sources.
Iranian MIO is processed and produced based on EN ISO 10601 standards. The product has high quality and is an excellent choice for following applications.
