Metallic Pigments When used as a pigment, cupric oxide produces blue, red, green, gray, pink or black glazes.
Background Cupric oxide, as a mineral, is known as tenorite, a black crystal. It is an irritant that can cause damage to the endocrine and central nervous system.
Batteries Cupric oxide can be used in dry cell batteries. It can also be used in wet cell batteries as the cathode.
Fibers Cupric oxide is used to make cuprammonium hydroxide solutions, which are used in the production of rayon fibers and fabrics.
Abrasive It is used as an abrasive for polishing optical equipment.
Thermite Cupric oxide can be used as a substitute for iron oxide in thermite. Thermite can turn into a low explosive from a low incendiary.
