- pink pigment;
In the manufacture of an iron zircon pink pigment, the reaction between iron oxide and zirconia must occur before the reaction forming the pigment. Techniques of precalcining, or premilling, which improve the contact between the iron oxide and the zirconia, serve to increase the strength of the final pigment.
