Titanium Dioxide


Titanium Dioxide is also known as Titanium oxide or titania. Titanium Dioxide exists as the mineral Rutile but 95% of Titanium Dioxide is commercially produced. Having a low electrical conductivity, it is used as an electrical insulator at room temperature. Due to its high refractive index and lack of absorption of visible light, Titanium Dioxide powder is used as a white pigment for paints, plastics and paper. In PVC plastics applications it imparts excellent brightness, a blue undertone and high opacity.

Titanium Dioxide has outstanding durability and excellent gloss due to which it is used in ink, paint & coating, and plastic industries.
