You need the best products in the market. For this reason we are confident that TiO2 offered by Tronox, a global leader in the TiO2 industry, will completely satisfy your requirements.
Titanium Dioxide is the most important white pigment used in coatings and construction. Although it is most often considered an effective white pigment, its greatest benefit is providing opacity.
Titanium Dioxide provides opacity by scattering the visible light, by bending the light before it reaches the substrate. For the efficient development of opacity, there is no real alternative to TiO2.
It is important to consider the appearance of transmitted light in developing your formulation. For instance, smaller particle size TiO2 grades transmit a more yellow undertone versus similar products containing a larger particle size. The grade of TiO2 you select will have a direct effect on the undertone of your final product, so it’s important to select the grade that will provide you with the effect you are looking for in a given application.
TRONOX® CR-826 is a dense silica/alumina-treated rutile pigment that offers flexibility for multiple applications, and it’s perfect for a wide range of applications including architectural coatings, industrial coatings and powder coatings.
This grade has high gloss, easy dispersion, exceptional tinting strength, excellent chalk resistance, and gloss retention in exterior applications. It also exhibits very low dispersant demand, a benefit for water-borne systems, as well as low oil absorption and vehicle demand, a benefit for high solids coatings. In plastic and rubber applications, TRONOX® CR-826 offers excellent tinting strength, ease of dispersion and very high exterior durability.
