Why use TiO2?
Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) is the most important and widely
used white pigment in the coatings industry. DuPont™ TiO2
efficiently scatters visible light, thereby imparting whiteness, brightness and
DuPont™ TiO2 is used to opacify paint films
by diffusely reflecting light. White pigment scatters or bends light strongly and
causes this reflection. All visible light will strike the white pigment and be reflected,
thus the film will appear opaque, white and bright. DuPont™ TiO2
maximizes hiding power, improves
tint strength, increases durability, and ensures
DuPont has the technology you need, ranking first among titanium dioxide manufacturers
in production capacity, product quality and technical assistance.

2 crystal structures exist: anatase and rutile. However, Rutile TiO2
pigments scatter light more efficiently, are more stable and are more durable than
