The titanium dioxide content and density of the pigments depend on the type and quantity of the treatment substances used to improve the application properties. Pure rutile has a density of , while pure anatase has a density of Most commercial titanium dioxide products are coated with inorganic (e.g. alumina, zirconia, silica) and organic (e.g. polyols, esters, siloxanes, silanes) compounds to control and improve surface properties. Levels of occupational exposure to titanium dioxide during its manufacture have been reported from the USA and Europe between and Polyanion dispersants stabilize aqueous dispersions of hydrophilic (native) inorganic oxide particles, including pigments currently used in paints, which are used at an annual scale of 3 million metric tons. While obtaining stable aqueous dispersions of hydrophobically modified particles has been desired for the promise of improved film performance and water barrier properties Cited by: 4.

From one day to the next our experts can be working on an advanced titanium dioxide (TiO 2) grade to optimize a plastic’s opacity; a special effect pigment to deflect solar rays and keep a plastic surface cool; or a color pigment to add vibrancy, interest and appeal to a plastic product.   Abstract Titanium dioxide pigments will typically have an inorganic surface coating based on a blend of alumina and silica and an organic treatment. Both the organic and inorganic treatments can influence the cure characteristics of polyester powder coatings. pigments (Figure 2) and comparing them to the surface-modified ones (Figure 3) in aqueous environ-ments, a dramatic change is noted. Comparing two titanium dioxide grades as reference pigments with typically good and excellent dispersion characteris-tics, it can be seen that the Dynamix pigments show similar characteristics and behavior. Reduction in particle size causes an increase in pigment surface area. Therefore, the coating with pigment reduced to six microns will have more pigment exposed on the surface, with less vehicle to protect against deterioration. Since the titanium dioxide chalks faster than the iron oxides, the result is an apparent loss of strength on aging.
