It is a rutile titanium dioxide pigment produced through a chlorination process. It is ideally suited for high temperature plastic applications requiring excellent dispersion and the lowest possible volatility. Provides high opacity with neutral undertones. Low level surface treatment provides excellent dry blend dispersion. The main advantage of this grade is the low content of crystallization water and surface adsorbed water. This property provides excellent performance in high temperature polyolefin extrusion coating operations that are sensitive to lace.
It is an opacifier based on rutile titanium dioxide (pigment). Provides high coverage and a very blue undertone. Provides enhanced dry flow capacity and very good performance. Provides anti-flocculation properties. For use in liquid masterbatch, flexible PVC and PVC plastisol applications.
It is a rutile titanium dioxide pigment produced by the chlorination method. It is specially formulated to reduce discoloration of resin compounds and finished plastic products during processing and exposure to UV light. Its high opacity and very blue undertone produces clean, bright whites at low loadings in clear resins and resins with natural colors. Its unique aluminum oxide surface treatment provides excellent resistance to tarnish. Excellent in polyolefin or engineering resin applications requiring high hiding power, very blue tint, excellent dispersion and resistance to tarnish. Its surface treatment allows it to be used in lead-stabilized PVC systems while still providing controlled chalking in exterior PVC applications.
It is a rutile titanium dioxide pigment produced through a chlorination process. It is designed to provide excellent melt flow for highly loaded thermoplastic masterbatches. It combines high tinting strength with blue undertones. Provides excellent crack resistance in high temperature extrusion coating and cast film applications. Features a unique surface treatment that has minimal impact on the melt flow characteristics of the masterbatch. This allows high loading to be achieved in relatively low melt index resins and still have a melt processable material. It wets easily with the surface of thermoplastics and can significantly increase processing rates during the preparation of thermoplastic masterbatches in certain types of compounding equipment.
It is a rutile titanium dioxide pigment produced through a chlorination process. Designed for outdoor plastic applications, this bright titanium dioxide combines neutral undertones with moderate coverage for easy color formulation work. It is also treated with an organic-based material to provide excellent overall flow and processability while minimizing the hygroscopicity of the inorganic coated titanium dioxide. It has the perfect combination of brightness, neutral undertones and medium pigmentation. Provides excellent gloss retention in exterior PVC applications. Silicon dioxide encapsulation technology is used for durability. The combination of surface treatments used provides excellent resistance to photochromism.

6 About the DuPont Titanium Dioxide by chlorination method
In the world, there are only two process technologies for the production of titanium dioxide, the sulfuric acid method and the chlorination method, but the prices of the finished products produced by the two differ by several thousand (per ton). Titanium dioxide by sulfuric acid method is not only low in value, but also has a narrow use. Titanium dioxide is mainly used in the production of coatings (about 60%). Among them, automotive paints, exterior wall coatings, etc. can only use chlorinated titanium dioxide, and interior wall coatings with poor weather resistance use sulfuric acid products.
Advantages of Dupont TiO2 (by chlorination method)?
- The three wastes are less. The chlorination method produces about 1 ton of waste per ton of product, which is much smaller than that of the sulfuric acid method;
- Less air pollution. The gas discharged by the chlorination method can meet the atmospheric emission requirements through recycling or incineration;
- The product quality is good. The rutile type produced by the chloride method has a controllable particle size and uniform distribution; the sulfuric acid method is mainly composed of anatine type titanium dioxide, which needs to be roasted to obtain rutile type titanium dioxide products, with rough particles and uneven distribution, which is difficult to meet the high-grade product needs;
- The chlorination method is a continuous production process, which is easy for industrial production. However, the chlorination method also has its weaknesses, mainly due to the complex device, high risk and high operational requirements. The production of chlorination method in the world is on the rise, and the newly built enterprises abroad in the 1990s basically use the chlorination method.
