Cadmium pigments are a class of pigments which contains cadmium as one of the chemical components. After its use in batteries, pigments are the second largest application of cadmium. These pigments are used in plastics, glasses, and ceramics among others along with protection against corrosion to metals such as iron steel, aluminum, and titanium. Cadmium pigments are inorganic coloring agents and slight modification in the chemical composition can induce many different colors. Cadmium pigments have favorable properties such as corrosion resistance, low melting point, good electrical conduction, and resistance to high temperature. The major application of cadmium pigments are in plastics along with complex polymers such as nylon, high density polyethylene, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), silicone resins, polycarbonates. There are no economical alternatives for cadmium pigments owing to their physical and chemical properties. The range of color hues derived from cadmium pigments is vast and is difficult to derive from other inorganic pigments However, cadmium pigments pose health concerns in people exposed to its environment. This has restrained the market, especially in North America and Europe.
