Pure titanium dioxide is a fine, white powder that provides a bright, white pigment. Titanium dioxide has been used for a century in a range of industrial and consumer products, including paints, coatings, adhesives, paper, plastics and rubber, printing inks, coated fabrics and textiles, as well as ceramics, floor coverings, roofing materials, cosmetics, toothpaste, soap, water treatment agents, pharmaceuticals, food colorants, automotive products, sunscreen and catalysts.
Titanium dioxide is produced in two main forms. The primary form, comprising over 98 percent of total production, is pigment grade titanium dioxide. The pigmentary form makes use of titanium dioxide’s excellent light-scattering properties in applications that require white opacity and brightness. The other form in which titanium dioxide is produced is as an ultrafine (nanomaterial) product. This form is selected when different properties, such as transparency and maximum ultraviolet light absorption, are required, such as in cosmetic sunscreens.
Applications of Pigment-grade Titanium Dioxide
Most surfaces and items that are white and pastel, and even dark shades of color, contain titanium dioxide. Pigment-grade titanium dioxide is used in a range of applications, including: Paints and Coatings, Plastics, Adhesives and Rubber, Cosmetics, Printing Ink, Paper, Food Contact Materials and Ingredients, Drug tablets (Pharma), capsule coatings & as decorative aid in some foods.
Applications of ultrafine-grade or Nanoscale Titanium Dioxide
Ultrafine-grades of titanium dioxide are most commonly used in the following specialty applications: Sunscreen (It becomes transparent to visible light & does not reflect visible light while absorbing UV light, thus acting as a barrier from sun’s harmful rays; Catalysts: Nanoscale titanium dioxide is used as a support material for catalyst applications. Major uses include in the automotive industry to remove harmful exhaust gas emissions and in power stations to remove nitrous oxides.
