DR-2588, titanium dioxide pigment
Inter-China Chemical will participate in CHINAPLAS 2018 - The 32nd International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries, which will be held on April 24 - 27, 2018 at National Exhibition and Convention Center, Hongqiao, Shanghai, PR China.

Specially Designed for Plastic Applications

DR-2588 is titanium dioxide rutile specially designed for plastic applications. It has super bluish undertone, outstanding tinting strength and hiding power. DR-2588 particular surface treatment guarantees super low moisture absorption, volatile at high temperature and oil absorption as well as excellent dispersion and processibility. Such as:

  • Make DR-2588 and LLDPE mixture into master batch by twin screw extruder. DR-2588 content in MB is 70%. Using LDPE as the base resin, dilute the master batch and lower the TiO2 content to 8% and make into 20 m plastic film in blowing machine. Test the transmittance under the USA MRS ASTM D1003-13.
  • High luminous transmittance (low opacity) means that the plastic film’s covering ability is poor. In this case, it needs more TiO2 to reach the ideal opacity.
  • Thanks to good surface treatment, dispersion, small particle size as well as concentrated particle size distribution, DR-2588 is enabled to have outstanding opacity.
  • TiO2 with good opacity can cut the production cost by reducing the TiO2 dosage. What is more, it can lower the TiO2 impact on the mechanic performance of final plastic products.
