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.

Ti-Pure™ grades for Engineering Polymers

Titanium dioxide can be used with various engineering polymers such as ABS, Polyamide, Polycarbonate, etc. in applications such as Appliances and Electronics.

ABS and ABS Blends benefit from Ti-Pure™ TiO2

Ti-Pure™ R-350 is designed to provide optimum bright blue optics, thermal and UV stability, and impact strength retention which ABS and ABS blend polymers value most. Ti-Pure™ R-105 and R-960 have been valued for the applications requiring maximum thermal stability during polymer melt processing and long-term weather resistance during use. Interactions between conventional titanium dioxide pigments and ABS polymer phases commonly lead to a loss of mechanical performance and poor heat & UV stability. By reducing these negative interactions, Ti-Pure™ R-350's innovative coating technology allows compounders to achieve excellent thermal stability in high-temperature processing conditions, better impact strength and enhanced UV stability compared to conventional titanium dioxide grades. For Polycarbonate blended with ABS, Ti-Pure™ R-103 is recommended. When durability is required Ti-Pure™ R-105 is suggested.

Polyamide (nylon) and PA Blends

For Polyamide products, selection of TiO2 depends on the compound formula, desired end use color, and processing methods. Ti-Pure™ R-103, R-104 or R-105 titanium dioxide grades can be considered. Thermal stability, melt-rheology stability, chemical reactivity, and polymer mechanical property influence are the most crucial attributes of a TiO2 pigment for these very high processing and end use temperature polymers.
