Powerful Application of Titanium Dioxide

2021/06/02


Titanium dioxide is widely used in coatings, plastics, rubber, ink, paper, chemical fiber, regenerated polyester, cosmetics, ceramics, daily chemical, medicine, food and other industries.There are two kinds of titanium dioxide: rutile titanium dioxide and anatase titanium dioxide.The most important applications for tutanium dioxide are for its use in the manufacture of paints and varnishes as well as paper and plastics, which account for about 80% of the world’s consumption.Jinan Ogilvy Chemical provides high-quality titanium dioxide, and can be used in conjunction with optical brightener to customized products brightening program.

 

Paint industry is the largest users of titanium dioxide, especially rutile titanium dioxide. The coatings contain titanium dioxide have bright colors, high hiding power, strong coloring power, low dosage and various kinds, which can protect the stability of the medium, and can enhance the mechanical strength and adhesion of the paint film, prevent cracks, and prevent the transmission of ultraviolet rays and moisture, prolong the life of paint film.

 

The plastic industry is the second largest user of titanium dioxide. The addition of titanium dioxide to plastic can improve the heat resistance, light resistance and weather resistance of plastic products, improve the physical chemistry properties of plastic products, and enhance the mechanical strength of plastic products, extend service life.

 

Paper Industry is the third largest titanium dioxide users, as paper filler, mainly used in high-grade paper and thin paper. Adding titanium dioxide in the paper, paper can have a good whiteness, gloss, high strength, thin and smooth, printing does not penetrate, light quality. The paper-making titanium dioxide generally uses anatase titanium dioxide without surface treatment, which can play the role of fluorescent whitening agent and increase the whiteness of paper. But laminated paper requires the use of surface treatment of rutile titanium dioxide, to meet the light, heat resistance requirements.

 

Titanium dioxide is an indispensable white pigment in high-grade ink. The ink containing titanium dioxide is durable and does not change color, surface wettability is good, easy to disperse. The titanium dioxide used in ink industry has rutile type, also has anatase type.

 

Textile and chemical fiber industry is another important application field of titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide for chemical fiber is mainly used as matting agent. Because the anatase titanium type is softer than the gold red type, the anatase titanium type is usually used. Titanium dioxide for chemical fiber generally does not need surface treatment, but some special varieties need surface treatment in order to reduce the photochemical action of titanium dioxide and avoid the degradation of fiber under the action of titanium dioxide.

 

Titanium dioxide in the rubber industry not only as a colorant, but also has the role of strengthening, anti-aging, filling. In the white and color rubber products to add titanium dioxide, in the sun, sun-resistant, non-cracking, non-discoloration, stretching rate and acid and alkali resistance. Titanium dioxide for rubber, mainly used in car tires and rubber shoes, rubber floor, gloves, sports equipment, generally anatase-based. But in the production of car tyres, a certain amount of rutile type is often added to enhance ozone and UV resistance.

 

Titanium dioxide has been widely used in cosmetics. Because titanium dioxide is non-toxic, far superior to lead white, almost all kinds of incense powder with titanium dioxide to replace lead white and zinc white. Only 5%-8% titanium dioxide can be added to the permanent white powder, so that the spice more slippery, adhesion, absorption and covering power. In water powder and cold cream titanium dioxide can reduce the feeling of greasy and transparent. Other spices, sunscreen, soap flakes, white soap and toothpaste can also be used in titanium dioxide.

 

The glaze made of titanium dioxide has strong transparency, small quality, strong impact resistance, good mechanical properties, bright color, not easy to pollution and so on. Titanium dioxide for food and medicine is a kind of titanium dioxide with high purity, low heavy metal content and strong hiding power.
