Rutile - Technical/Industrial Grade
We are discontinuing this product and have reduced prices accordingly to clear.
Titanium Dioxide is the naturally occurring oxide of titanium and is found as the minerals Rutile, Anatase and Brookite. rhodochrosite. Titanium dioxide accounts for 70% of the total production volume of pigments worldwide. It is widely used to provide whiteness and opacity to products such as paints, plastics, papers and inks.
A special micronized rutile grade with a low inorganic and hydrophobic organic surface treatment, possessing good optical properties, opacity, and an excellent degree of dispersibility.
Uses for Titanium Dioxide:
- In ceramic glazes titanium dioxide acts as an opacifier and seeds crystal formation
- As whitening and opacifying agent in the following industries:- Coatings and Paints, Printing, Plastics, Synthetic Fibres, Paper, Rubber, Ceramics, Cement, Cosmetics
- Applied to sports pitches, tennis courts etc to produce the white lines.
- A thin film of TiO2 is used to produce reflective optical coatings for dielectric mirrors and some gemstones.
- Used in the production of self-cleaning glass and antifogging coatings.
- Production of titanium metal.
- Used as a welding electrode covering.
