Leverkusen, 8 July 2020. BFT International talked with Axel Schneider of C&G Pigment Europe about the company’s strategies, its milestones as well as about current market trends with reference to the overall construction industry.
BFT International, a market-leading publication for the construction industry, talked to Axel Schneider, Managing Director of C&G Pigment Europe, to learn more about C&G’s European strategy, why the company has decided to found a subsidiary in Germany, its focus activities and about the current crisis with its future impact.
In the interview Axel points out that the intensified cooperation with its partner Zhejiang Huayuan Pigment was the driver for C&G Pigment to found a subsidiary in Europe to address this market together. Hence iron oxides of the HYROX brand are in the center of the company’s attention, but offering chrome oxide green and titanium dioxide pigments forms a solid package to serve customers on a broader base.
Also Covid19 was a topic of interest for BFT International. Particularly the current impact and the question about “what’s next” were addressed. Logically it is the focus on environmental protection that is expected to return onto the global agenda. Whilst many Chinese companies are still seen critically, C&G Pigment has strong and trustworthy partners also in this respect.

Leverkusen, 16 June 2020. C&G Pigment’s Axel Schneider was interviewed by the European Coatings Journal and explained why C&G Pigment has decided to enter the European market for inorganic pigments. He underlines the fundamental cooperation with Zhejiang Huayuan Pigment Co. (Hyrox) and points out why modern Chinese pigment manufacturers are more and more in line with Western ones regarding environmental care.
After almost 30 years in export business for well-known Chinese manufacturers of iron oxides, chrome oxides, titanium dioxide and carbon black, C&G Pigment has decided to expand its activities to the European continent. With a special focus on iron oxides manufactured by Zhejiang Huayuan Pigment and marketed under the brand name of Hyrox, the company sees good opportunities to implement its business.
In the interview Axel highlights the challenges, but also the chances. He explains why Germany was chosen as the European home base and he takes reference to the corona virus pandemic. Most of all he illustrates why Hyrox of today is no longer the Hyrox of 10 years ago, now running a fully modernized production facility. This is, in combination with the expertise of C&G Pigment, an excellent basis for a successful partnership, in which C&G Pigment acts as a sales channel of Hyrox.

Hangzhou, 20th April 2020. C&G Pigment’s partner Zhejiang Huayuan Pigment Co. Ltd. is now offering its manganese ferrite in micronized form, enabling a better dispersion in various systems where a finer and more homogeneous particle size is required. The product’s name is HYROX Black 750TAM.
Our manufacturing partner Zhejiang Huayuan Pigment Co. Ltd. has announced that its heatstable manganese ferrite is now available in micronized form. The product code is HYROX Black 750TAM. It offers improved properties like a fineness of Hegman 6+ and a more even particle size distribution. These characteristics facilitate dispersing the product in more demanding systems in the range of powder coating, coil coating and other applications of this kind.
HYROX Black 750TAM is a manganese ferrite with a heat stability of up to 700°C. The product is used in applications where the coating is exposed to high temperatures like chimneys, ovens and others. It has excellent weather and lightfastness properties and can be used in areas where regular iron oxide black fails to be sufficiently stable to high temperatures.
