Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is the most widely used white pigment in the world. It’s the mainstay of our range and we are proud to be a front-runner in this highly specialized sector. Titanium is the 9th most abundant element in the world and titanium dioxide is the oxide of the metal, which occurs naturally in two main forms: rutile and anatase. It is then processed to remove any impurities, creating an incredibly useful, multi-purpose, white pigment. Odourless and absorbent, TiO2 has a high refractive index – meaning it has excellent light scattering capabilities. Ideal for inclusion in a variety of consumer and industrial products, TiO2 is particularly well suited to applications that need to deliver high levels of opacity, brightness and ultraviolet (UV) protection.
