Ti-Pure™ rutile titanium dioxide pigments impart whiteness, brightness and opacity to various polymer applications including polyolefins, PVC, and engineering polymers. In addition to optical properties, Ti-Pure™ TiO2 can help to improve processability and to protect the polymers from UV degradation.

Titanium dioxide for Plastics

What is titanium dioxide?

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is a white powder pigment used to impart whiteness, brightness and opacity. This white pigment is chemically inert, insoluble in polymers and heat stable under harsh processing conditions. Titanium dioxide is a multifaceted material when used in plastic applications.

Chemours offers a comprehensive range of Ti-Pure™ rutile titanium dioxide pigment manufactured by the chloride process that offer outstanding benefits to plastic products. Rutile pigments are preferred over anatase pigments as rutile pigments scatter light more efficiently, are more stable, and are less likely to catalyze photodegradation. In addition to excellent optical properties, Ti-Pure™ TiO2 can help to improve processability and to protect the polymers from UV degradation. Polymer type, processing conditions and end-product performance are critical criteria influencing the selection of the right titanium dioxide grade.
