Titanium dioxide for plastic, ink, paint
Introduction – What is Titanium dioxide?
Titanium dioxide, also known as titanium(IV) oxide, is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula TiO2. When used as a pigment, it is called titanium white, Pigment White 6 (PW6), or CI 77891.

Titanium Dioxide by Process
There are two main processes, the Sulfate Process, and the Chloride Process， Both sulfate and chloride processes produce the titanium dioxide pigment in the rutile crystal form, but the Sulfate Process can be adjusted to produce the anatase form. Anatase, being softer, is used in fiber and paper applications. The Sulfate Process is run as a batch process; the Chloride Process is run as a continuous process.
|Sulfate Process||Chloride Process|
|long-established and simple technology||new technology|
|uses lower grade, cheaper ores||needs high-grade ore|
|batch process||continuous process|
|large amounts of waste materials||small amounts of waste formed with toxicity problems: Cl2 and TiCl4|
|pollution control expensive||recovery and recycling of chlorine possible|
|produces anatase and rutile pigments||only produces rutile pigments|
Titanium dioxide by type
Titanium dioxide has two forms: rutile and anatase.
Rutile is deep red while anatase is yellow to blue.
Rutile has a higher absorbance property than anatase.
Rutile and anatase are both used in as white pigments for paints, paper, and plastics.
Rutile has better heat resistance and light resistance than anatase titanium dioxide.
