Ecovadis cert 2017CATHAY INDUSTRIES demonstrates its commitment to sustainability by maintaining certifications that guarantee compliance with DIN ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. Furthermore, as the first player in the Chinese pigment manufacturing the company has obtained a silver certificate from EcoVadis, underlining that sustainability is not only seen in the sense of product quality and environment, but also in the context of social responsibility.


**We maximize production efficiency

All production processes are designed for maximum yield, of which nearly 100% of raw materials are efficiently used.

**We produce non-hazardous pigments

Iron oxide pigments produced by CATHAY INDUSTRIES are non-hazardous. They are comparable to natural iron oxides, which are extremely stable. However, CATHAY INDUSTRIES products are far purer than their natural counterparts. This purity allows us to ensure highest quality levels.

**We conserve energy and cut waste

Because our production processes and logistical controls are so fine-tuned, CATHAY INDUSTRIES is able to produce customized pigment. We use the least possible energy and the most advanced state of art technology. As well, we complete each custom order and leave behind no wasted, off-spec material.
