iron oxide

A combination of iron and oxygen that is found in nature and also manufactured. Iron oxide is used in pigments and coatings such as the surfaces of magnetic tapes and disks. Iron bonds to oxygen in the air and eventually becomes rust, which is also iron oxide. Iron oxide-hydroxide, also known as "ferric oxyhydroxide," is iron, oxygen and hydrogen.
