PRETIOX

Titanium Dioxide

Titanium Dioxide is the most important and the most common inorganic pigment with global sales of approx. 6.5 mil tons annually. It has the highest covering power and scattering power and is used in manufacturing of coating and plastic materials, paper, leather, rubber, enamel, ceramics, food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, fibers, and other industries.

Product version for:

For paints

PRETIOX titanium dioxide for paints and coating materials has an optimal size and a very narrow particle distribution, a high colouring power and a neutral or bluish undertone. The high degree of light dispersion produced by the pigment particles and their inferred ability to reflect light intensely (especially in the visible part of the spectrum) offers many advantages within current applications. With regard to their optical parameters, the homogeneous nature of the various micronized rutile products allows their application in a variety of toning systems. The efficient surface treatment minimizes flocculation in coating systems, promoting easy mixing and a good level of stability in the relevant application.

PRETIOX titanium dioxide conforms to hygienic norms regulating the use of materials that come into contact with foodstuffs and EU requirements for safety of toys.

For paper

PRETIOX titanium dioxide for paper manufacturing possesses outstanding dispersibility within an aqueous environment. Optimum particle size and a narrow distribution curve allow a high degree of retention within paper pulp and excellent optical properties. PRETIOX titanium dioxide conforms to hygienic norms regulating the use of materials that come into contact with foodstuffs and EU requirements for safety of toys. PRETIOX AV01Z conforms to legislative requirements for cigarette filter manufacturing (E-171 quality).

For plastics

Titanium dioxide is one of the most frequently used pigments in the plastics industry as even a very low dosage does not only guarantee the required white or pastel shade of the final product but it can also provide sufficient protection of the plastic against destructive UV radiation. PRETIOX titanium dioxide for plastics has a different particle size, while the combination of organic and inorganic surface treatment offers a wide range of opportunities in various applications. PRETIOX titanium dioxide conforms to hygienic norms regulating the use of materials that come into contact with foodstuffs and EU requirements for safety of toys.

For construction

Titanium Dioxide PRETIOX is used in this sector primarily for its excellent colouring ability and tinting strength. Another praised quality is its dispersibility of PRETIOX in all applications within the construction industry. Construction material manufacturers traditionally demand a high degree of resistance to atmospheric conditions, light fastness and chemical resistance mainly in alkalic surroundings. The grades of PRETIOX titanium dioxide listed below conform to the strict requirements for applications in the construction industry defined by the harmonized standard ČSN EN 12878 to which they are certified.
