Product Information

Titanium Dioxide anatase.

     Titanium dioxide occurs in nature as well-known minerals rutile, anatase and brookite. Titanium dioxide is the most widely used white pigment because of its brightness and very high refractive index (n = 2.488), in which it is surpassed only by a few other materials. Approximately 4 million tons of pigmentary TiO2 are consumed annually worldwide. When deposited as a thin film, its refractive index and colour make it an excellent reflective optical coating. As well as uses as a marker for lawn tennis courts and sports pitches,TiO2 is also an effective opacifier in powder form, where it is employed as a pigment to provide whiteness and opacity to products such as paints, coatings, plastics, papers, inks, foods, medicines (i.e. pills and tablets), sunscreens as well as most toothpastes.

     TiO2 incorporated into outdoor building materials, such as paving stones in noxer blocks or paints, can substantially reduce concentrations of airborne pollutants such as volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides.
      In ceramic glazes titanium dioxide acts as an opacifier and seeds crystal formation.
