Umbers are one of the oldest pigments used by mankind. These natural Iron Oxides are known for their durability and are considered a permanent pigment. Burnt Umbers build on the lightfast and chemical resistance of Raw Umbers and add improved heat stability. Raw Umbers are naturally occurring Iron-Hydroxides, which convert to Iron Oxides upon heat treating. This is how we get the term “Burnt Umber.” Hoover Color’s 550BU is processed to a lower extent than Hoover Color’s “Best and Better” series, but can still be dispersed to Hegman specifications with a media mill.
Burnt Umbers are one of the most versatile pigments on the market today. They are used in almost any application, but are most often recognized as one of the prime pigments used for stains and glazes in wood coatings because of their transparency and warm undertone. Whatever your application is, a Burnt Umber is an economical place to start for producing a wide range of brown and tan colors.
